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

Ready In:




  • In bowl combine all salsa ingredients and mix well.
  • The sweet vs tart balance can be adjusted to your taste by adding more sugar or lime juice.
  • Sprinkle each side of the scallops with salt, pepper and sugar.
  • In skillet, melt butter over medium high heat.
  • Right when butter starts to turn color, add scallops and cook 1 1/2-2 minutes on each side or until they are lightly browned.
  • (Make sure they do not overcook!) Transfer scallops to plate and serve with salsa.

    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
