Seared Scallops With Caramelized Pineapple Relish
|Olive oil||3 Teaspoon|
|Onion||1⁄2 , chopped|
|Garlic||2 Clove (10 gm), minced|
|Pineapple||1⁄2 , peeled, cored, and diced|
|Red bell pepper||1 , seeded and diced|
|Chopped fresh cilantro||2 Tablespoon|
|Ground pepper||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Sea scallops||1 1⁄2 Pound|
1. To make the relish, heat 1 1/2 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens, 2-3 minutes. Add the pineapple and cook until the pineapple starts to brown, about 7 minutes.
2. Stir in the bell pepper and cook until softened, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the cilantro, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
3. Wipe out the skillet, return it to medium-high heat, and add the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoon oil. Sprinkle the scallops with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Add the scallops to the skillet and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and opaque in the center, 4-5 minutes.
