I love this simple be impressively decadent recipe because it's such a healthy and nutritious adaption of an Old English red meat favorite. The combination of salmon, prawns and scallops contain positive fats, like Omega 3's, which help combat inflammation rather than contribute to it like saturated fat-rich beef, lamb, pork and offal. I recommend this tasty trio whole-heartedly!

- Clean, dry and portion the seafood. The prawns may be cooked in their shells or cleaned and deveined first. I prefer the latter. Lightly coat the salmon, scallops and prawns with olive oil in preparation for the grill. This recipe can also be done entirely in a sauté pan if necessary, but the grill provides better taste and presentation.
- Finely chop the parsley, chive and dill in preparation for finishing garnish.
- Melt the butter in a small saucepan.
- Pre-heat a cast iron grill plate, or barbecue, to medium temp. Clean and lightly oil the grates, then arrange the seafood in their groups on the grill. Each ingredient will take a slightly different amount of time to cook. The salmon should be started flesh-side down to obtain the nice grill marks.
- While tending to the seafood on the grill, combine olive oil, minced garlic, chopped parsley and a squeeze of fresh lemon in a small mixing bowl.
- Turn all the seafood ingredients on the grill once. The prawns will likely reach doneness first. They go straight into the bowl of olive oil and aromatics to be tossed and coated with those flavors.
- The salmon and scallops will likely finish at the same time, a minute or two after the prawns. Test by pinching or pressing with your finger. The flesh should be slightly taught and firm, but still give a little in the middle. At this point brush a tiny bit of melted butter on the scallops and douse the salmon with a squeeze of lemon right on the grill.
- Plate the mixed seafood grill by arranging 1 piece of salmon, 2 scallops and 2 prawns per person. Garnish the salmon with dill and the scallops with chive. The prawns will enjoy their own unique flavor contrast thanks to the bath they took right off the grill!
The modest brushing of melted butter on the scallops won't blow any dietary gaskets. Sometimes we need to be just a little bit naughty, don't you think?
