    A classic Latin American dish - the seafood is cooked by the acidity of the lime juice. This is so easy to make, but will impress even the most discerning of guests! Fresh ingredients are a must in this recipe.

    Seared scallops are served with a spicy fresh pineapple, mango, cucumber and red pepper salsa. Simple, colourful and delicious. Be sure to use fresh king scallops which are large and plump, and take care not to overcook them; they should remain tender and moist.
