Again, I went to Roche Brother in Mashpee and got fresh scallops. Next was the side....I saw a very appealing display of mangoes and there was the inspiration. A fresh salsa!
The pan seared scallops with Bashmati rice and fresh salsa were a real hit at home. Very fresh!
Mango and Pineapple Salsa
Makes about 2 cups
1 ripe mango
5 slices fresh pineapple
1/2 red bell pepper
1 ripe plum tomato
1 shallot, minced
3 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped finely
2 tsp olive oil
1 tsp Cholula hot sauce (I used the Chipole one)
Dice the mango, pineapple, red bell pepper, plum tomato into small cubes. Transfer to a bowl.
Add the shallot, cilantro, lime juice and olive oil. Add the hot sauce and let stand for at least one hour to let the flavors develop.
Serve alongside seafood, chicken or pork!
