This is a light, spicy, and sweet Scallop dish perfect for dinner parties. I really love Wasabi and the flavor works well with the tropical fruit salsa.

ingredients

directions

  • Stir together all of the salsa ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Place 1/4 cup rice in center of 4 plates using a custard cup or any other method of shaping the rice mold.
  • Place 1/4 of the salsa mixture around the rice on each plate.
  • Mix together ginger, wasabi paste, garlic, olive oil, and salt in another bowl.
  • Heat a large saute pan to medium-high heat with some olive oil.
  • Dip each flat end of each scallop in the wasabi-ginger mixture and place in the hot saute pan. Sear the scallops for 2 minutes on the first side without moving. Flip over and finish the cooking process for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Place 3 scallops on each plate. Drizzle each scallop with a tiny bit of sesame oil to garnish. I also like to garnish with a few sprigs of cilantro in the middle of the rice.
