      Not many ingredients and lots of fruits with scallops.....on a hot day like today, this was exactly what we were looking for. Apple was used in place of mango and the recipe was halved for the two of us. I really liked the taste and interplay of of scallops, pineapple, red pepper and apple lightly grilled together. What really stood out was what was done to the scallops first. I did not know why sugar and lemon was used as marinade for scallops, but I did marinate them for 1-2 hours ahead. The direction said 15 minutes, but I had to prepare much of this ahead of grilling and so glad I did. The sugar/lemon marinade made the scallops very, very rich tasting. I plan to use this technique with scallops in other recipes. The sauce was was quite light tasting and next time I make this sauce I would like to add soy sauce and perhaps garlic. Thank you Jen for posting this wonderful recipe. Made for Asian Forum's Let's Get Skewered Tag.
