Seafood Gazpacho
While traditional gazpacho is not made with seafood, this unique variation makes this version more nutritious and satisfying and a great addition to your Healthiest Way of Eating. Enjoy the extra boost of those hard-to-find omega-3 fatty acids that come from both the shrimp and scallops.
Seafood Gazpacho Prep and Cook Time: 25 minutes



  1. Rinse and dry scallops. Put into lemon juice.
  2. Mince onion and press garlic and let sit for 5 minutes to bring out their health-promoting properties
  3. Prepare rest of ingredients and mix in a bowl with onion and garlic
  4. Add scallops and lemon juice at end. Letting the scallops sit in the lemon juice while preparing rest of ingredients allows them to marinate. If you can prepare this soup ahead of time and place in refrigerator for an hour or more, the taste improves.
Serves 4

The bay scallops are actually added raw to this soup. Marinating in the lemon juice cooks them slightly. If you prefer having them cooked more, steam for about 1 minute (watch the clock as cooking for much longer will overcook them and make them tough). You may want to salt just as you are serving this soup. The salt will draw out the water from the cucumber and dilute the flavor. Also, this soup looks and tastes best if the peppers and cucumbers are cut about the same size as the scallops. By cutting them small, the flavors of the different ingredients blend together better.

Introduction to Recipe Rating System Chart

In order to better help you identify recipes that feature a high concentration of nutrients for the calories they contain, we created a Recipe Rating System. This system allows us to highlight the recipes that are especially rich in particular nutrients. The following chart shows the nutrients for which Seafood Gazpacho is either an excellent, very good, or good source (below the chart you will find a table that explains these qualifications). If a nutrient is not listed in the chart, it does not necessarily mean that the recipe doesn't contain it. It simply means that the nutrient is not provided in a sufficient amount or concentration to meet our rating criteria. (To view this recipe's in-depth nutritional profile that includes values for dozens of nutrients - not just the ones rated as excellent, very good, or good - please use the link below the chart.) To read this chart accurately, you'll need to glance back up to see the ingredients used in the recipe and the number of serving sizes provided by the recipe. Our nutrient ratings are based on a single serving. For example, if a recipe makes 4 servings, you would be receiving the nutrient amounts listed in the chart by eating 1/4th of the combined ingredients found in the recipe. Now, returning to the chart itself, you can look next to the nutrient name in order to find the nutrient amount it offers, the percent Daily Value (DV%) that this amount represents, the nutrient density that we calculated for this recipe and nutrient, and the rating we established in our rating system. For most of our nutrient ratings, we adopted the government standards for food labeling that are found in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's "Reference Values for Nutrition Labeling."
