    MrsMM's Note:

    This is an awesome accidental find that I came across on msn.com, credited to Food & Wine. I can't possibly express how delicious this dish is. Each component is wonderful- it's almost a three-for-one deal- one recipe with 3 things that you can make just on their own. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did. Couldn't wait to share with you all!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large bowl, combine basil, lime juice, olive oil, onion, jalapeno and garlic.
    2. 2
      With rubber spatula, gently fold in the avocados.
    3. 3
      Season with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil until shimmering. Season the scallops with salt and pepper and cook over high heat until browned outside, but still rare in the center- about 2 minutes per side.
    5. 5
      Transfer scallops to warmed platter- keep them warm.
    6. 6
      Add water and tomatoes to the same skillet and cook over med-high heat, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom until the water has reduced- this happens in about 2 minutes.
    7. 7
      Remove from heat and stir in the balsamic vinegar.
    8. 8
      Season with salt and pepper.
    9. 9
      Pour the tomato sauce over the scallops and serve with avocado salsa on the side.

      *Use the salsa and the sauce on steak, shrimp, with chips, in a sandwich -- the possibilities are endless!

      This is a really simple preparation that ends up looking and tasting like it took a lot of time! I used scallops that were pre-frozen so they released some water in cooking. If you do the same I would suggest skipping the water when you add tomatoes to the skillet. I ended up having to drain the tomato sauce to get the right consistency, but it still tasted great. As advertised, the avocado salsa can be added to anything-it is delicious!

      The ingredients in this recipe looked so good that I knew I had to try it! We loved the delicious tomato/balsamic vinegar sauce, and the buttery taste of the avocado salsa really complemented the scallops. I can image using this salsa for tortilla chips, as one of the fillings in a tortilla, etc. When I make this again I'll only use half the amount of onion, however, as it tasted a little too strong, but perhaps it was because I used a regular yellow onion. Next time, I'm going to use a sweet onion such as a Vidalia. This is a great dish to serve company or celebrating a special occasion -- it's terrific!
