Nice summer dinner! This can also be served as an appetizer for 8 by splitting scallops up and serving on individual dishes.

Wow, what a treat! The fruit salsa added such a fresh, tropical touch and complemented the scallops nicely. Thanks, Kim127. Made for ZWT7, Mischief Makers team.

Fabulous. . .totally restaurant quality. I bought the biggest, most beautiful scallops I could find and cut them in half horizontally so that they cook more quickly; 4 giant scallops cut in half were enough for 2 entree portions. I did add some Jamaican Jerk Seasoning on top of the scallops which was a great complement to the flavors in the salsa and BTW, I thought the apple in the salsa was great and I would have never thought to do that. I also snuck some Jalapeno Tabasco and some cantaloupe into the salsa. I loved this meal!

We ate this as an entree for three people. This was very easy to put together and instructions were straightforward. Only change I made was I used less salt in the salsa (personal choice) otherwise I kept everything the same. The flavours with the salsa and scallops were very refreshing. Thank you Kim127
