About this recipe:Seared scallops are served with a spicy fresh pineapple, mango, cucumber and red capsicum salsa. Simple, colourful and delicious. Be sure to use fresh scallops which are large and plump and take care not to overcook them; they should remain tender and moist.
90g fresh pineapple, diced
90g fresh mango, diced
60g cucumber, peeled and diced
90g red pepper, diced
handful chopped fresh coriander
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 jalapeño chilli (or green chilli), seeded and minced
Combine the pineapple, mango, cucumber, red pepper, coriander, lime juice and chilli. Season to taste with salt and pepper; set aside.
Heat a large lightly oiled frying pan over medium-high heat. Season the scallops with salt and pepper. Add half of the scallops to the pan; sear until golden brown on both sides - about 2 minutes per side. Transfer the scallops to a warmed plate while searing the remaining scallops.
Spoon the salsa over the scallops, and serve immediately.
