Paleo Seared Scallops With Mango-Pineapple Salsa Recipe


Scallops Ingredients:

  • 1 lb scallops (fresh, or frozen and thawed)
  • 1 1/2 tbs ghee
  • A little salt & pepper
  • dash of garlic powder

Salsa Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh mango - chopped small
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple - chopped small
  • 1 fresh avocado, diced
  • 1 jalapeno - seeded and diced small
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper - diced small
  • 1/4 cup red onion - diced small
  • 3 tbs fresh cilantro, chopped (leaves only)
  • 2 limes - juiced


  1. Start by making the salsa; combine all ingredients and squeeze lime juice over.
  2. Next check your scallops for a small, hard flap attached along one side – if it's there, gently pull it off
  3. Make sure your scallops are dry. Pat them with a paper towel to absorb moisture
  4. Heat ghee in a large skillet over medium-high heat
  5. Lightly season the dry scallops on one side – you can used a little salt and pepper, plus a touch of garlic powder
  6. When the ghee is hot, place scallops in pan and cook the first side about 1 1/2 minutes - don't move them, just leave them alone to give them a good sear. When they turn a slightly brownish color about a third of the way up the sides, it's time to flip them over
  7. Flip the scallops over and cook the other side 1 1/2 minutes. Don't overcook – the scallops should still be translucent in the middle
  8. Note: Thicker scallops may need to cook up to 2 minutes per side
  9. Remove from pan and allow to rest for about 1 minute to finish cooking inside
  10. Serve over, or topped with, the mango-pineapple salsa

To get a good sear, make sure your pan is hot enough and the scallops are completely dry.
