You’ll need:

I cup thawed baby’s scallops

12-16 peeled uncooked shrimp

2 tbsp butter

1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles

1/3 cup diced red pepper

1/2 cup arugula

Red onions sliced

1 handful fresh basil (6-8 big leaves)

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 garlic clove

First heat oven to 450 degrees. Place flat bread into pan and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with dried basil and oregano (a little garlic salt also if you would like) bake for about 5 minutes to help get a little crispy.

Make sure shrimp and scallops are thawed, drained and dried well. Then sprinkle seafood with garlic salt, basil, oregano and red pepper flakes (only if you like a little heat add pepper flakes) Then in a sauté pan heat butter and olive oil, pour in shrimp and scallops and cook until shrimp is nice and pink and scallops start to get a little browning on outside. Remove from heat and place into bowl.

For veggies chop some red onion and red peppers about 4 tbsp of each and add to sauté pan and let heat to bring out flavor.

For sauce in a food processor add 1/3 cup olive oil, handful of basil, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 garlic clove and a sprinkle of salt. Blend until smooth. Taste and season to liking.

To assemble take heated flat bread and then spoon on the sauce, add the sautéed veggies to top the. Top with a handle full of arugula, a handful of feta cheese then seafood. Then top with fresh sliced veggies, a few more pieces arugula and cheese. Place into oven for about 7 minutes until the bread is crispy, cheese is melted and veggies cooked. Remove and drizzle a few tbsp of basil dressing, top with fresh Parmesan and arugula and enjoy! For left overs wrap in tin foil and keep in fridge to re heat open tin foil bake at 400 until heated and enjoy all over again!
