Scallops with Ginger-Mango Sauce

24 Apr

Mangos were on sale at local supermarket and I bought quite a few of them. Some of them got very ripe and I had to come up a recipe for them. I had taken scallops out of the freezer for dinner and needed to create a pairing. I thought mango might be too sweet with sweet scallops, but adding ginger and vinegar cut down on the sweetness.

  • 1 ripe mango
  • 2 tbs rice vinegar
  • juice and zest of a lemon
  • 1 tsp shiracha hot sauce
  • 1 tsp ginger

Peel the mango and cut fruit off of seed, puree in a food processor with the vinegar, hot sauce and ginger until smooth.
squeeze juice out and Add the lemon juice and zest to mango puree.
Put in nonreactive saucepan and simmer on low heat for 5-10 minutes. Season with salt.

Pat the scallops dry with a paper towel. Season with pepper. Coat a sauté pan with olive oil and heat over medium high heat. Sear the scallops 1 1/2-2 minutes each side. Pour some mango sauce on plate and top the sauce with scallops.
