DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, combine basil, lime juice, olive oil, onion, jalapeno and garlic.
  • With rubber spatula, gently fold in the avocados.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • 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.
  • Transfer scallops to warmed platter- keep them warm.
  • 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.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the balsamic vinegar.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • 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!
