Pepper
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Grapefruit
Baby Kale
Cleaned, Diver Scallops (just ask your fish monger)

Instructions:
1. With your serrated knife, carefully cut away rind and any pith, until you are left with a whole grapefruit.
2. Cut grapefruit into 1/4 " disks and set aside.
3. In the mixing bowl, mix the kale, EVOO, and salt. And set aside.
4. Evenly disperse sugar in the raw on top of grapefruit, and using the torch brulee.
Repeat this step to ensure an even coating, and a nice thick crust on grapefruit.
5. Heat pan, while pan is heating up, season scallops on both sides, with salt and pepper. Add canola to pan.
6. Once oil begins to smoke add scallops and sear on both sides. Once  seared remove scallops from pan and drain on top of a paper towel.
