admin's picture
Ingredients
  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
  Salt 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Sea scallops 1 1⁄2 Pound
Directions

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.
