Now you really have my attention! I think scallops are one of my very favorite foods. I’ve had pretty good luck with the frozen scallops from Costco (of course, I’m living in the middle of a desert here, so fresh ones would be horribly expensive!) I think if you’re using frozen ones it’s pretty important to thaw them in the refrigerator, and not in water, and then I gently squeeze each one inside a paper towel so there isn’t too much liquid when they’re cooked. I love to cook scallops on the grill too, in one of those pans with holes that looks like a mini wok. Ok, I am rambling on here. Can you tell how much I love scallops? Saving this recipe right now.
Looks wonderful! I think I’ll try that salsa on a big hunk of fresh mahi or red snapper. MMM! You could make a great sorbet with that leftover cantaloupe too… what a perfect meal for a super hot FL day.
The way we cook, cut our fruits, the ingredients and dishes we choose, reveals our personality to our readers. The way you cut your mangoes is hygienic. And they look pretty when they are still attached to the mango skin.
Gosh, when I came in here for a look, I nearly died! Died and gone to heaven! (had a miraculous healing and came back down to earth! Ha ha ha…) Mango, melon, onions and most of all, scallops! (and chili powder!) All of my fave things together. I sat here, looking at that dish for a good 5 minutes before I typed this! LOL….
I totally love mangoes. Just that once I used mangoes for salsa, mangoes that reach my hands even since never got a chance to even touch any plate or bowl. Straight into the mouth of those luscious, sweet mango cubes. I shall get my summer cantaloupe soon. And dry packed scallops …now I know why my scallops look so big and fat when I buy them but tends to shrink after light searing. :(
Once again, beautiful colors of this dish, and a well-written article over at Creative Loafing.
Why didn’t I see you in the next Food Network Star…but again…you would have shine though without a need for a competition.
I can’t tell you if you reminded me of Rachael Ray until “…I’ll see you when I see ya…” *lol*
this looks fantastic! i just recently tried scallops and loved them. i worry that my recent honeymoon in the dominican republic has ruined me for mangoes though…i’ll have to see if my farmers’ market has any because i’ve now had the best mangoes EVER! i think this will definitely be the first recipe i try when i decide to make scallops at home for the first time.
Steeped – wait for them to be on sale. 1 lb will serve 4 people as a main dish
W&S- I hope you can find mangoes – its worth the effort!
Helen- Yes, you can taste the cheese….you’ll have to try it because it just made the scallops that much more special (and unexpected too since you can’t really “see” the cheese)
Lydia- Come visit anytime!
Kayln – Great idea to use the pan on the grill…never thought of that. I usually pan fry them because one time I tried grilling them and half fell though!!! :-(
Garrett- I specialize in shibbyness!
LPC- awww thanks!
Courtney – Mahi mahi would be awesome with the salsa…and I just bought a honeydew melon that I froze right before I left for CA (i’m writing from los angeles) – so when I get back its going to be either sorbet or gelato
Steve- The size of hamburger patties?!?! HOLY SCALLOPS BATMAN!!! What the @!I$#@* are they feeding scallops? cats and dogs?
Jennifer J- There was one bite of the salsa that screamed !WHOA! Some of the chilli powder must have pooled on this poor little mango chunk…and it fell on the right spot on my tongue.
MrsHBT- hmm….hygenic….I certainly take showers daily and use moisturizer regularly….so I guess so!
WMW- hallelujah!! you’ve been healed by the power of mangoes!
Tiger- Thats why I always buy double the amount of mango that I really need – one for me, one for the salsa…
I’ll be back in CA in a couple of months – maybe I’ll take a quick trip to SF just so I can prove I’m not like RR!
SGC- I whopped RR’s ass!! Cotton Candy?!?!? I need to see this recipe!!! coudln’t find it on your site….
Ashley- You know what? The last time I got mangoes from the organic market, they were from Haiti….those were AMAZING.
