  • Salt
  • 1 lime, juiced and zested
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 small red bell pepper, deseeded and diced
  • 1 jalapeno, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 large mango, diced (substitute for pineapple, if preferred)

  3. Fold in lime juice and zest.
  4. Wash scallops and pat dry with paper towel. Season salt and pepper.
  5. Heat a medium-sized skillet on high heat. When pan is hot, melt 1 tsp. butter and place scallops in the pan. (If necessary, work in batches of scallops to avoid overcrowding the pan.)
