If your find supports the -ls switch, you could do something like this:
find . -type f -ls| awk '{print $7,$NF}'

If there are blanks in the file names, there could be missing something though.

If the -ls switch is not supported, you could use
find .... -exec ls {} \; awk ....

or if there is the possibility for your ls to tell it which format it should have, to define that you only need the size and filename.

The du command prints size and filename, so maybe try...
find . -type f -exec du -b {} \+

Try this ls -lR
