How to Make It

Cook the rice according to the package directions.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the mangoes, cucumbers, ginger, lime juice, 1 tablespoon of the oil, the cilantro, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; set aside.

Rinse the scallops and pat them dry with paper towels. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Heat the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the scallops and cook until golden brown and the same color throughout, about 2 minutes per side. Divide among individual plates and serve atop the rice with the salsa.

Tip: Look for scallops that are translucent rather than stark white; they'll taste fresher. Some arrive in the store with the muscle still attached. A quick tug with your fingers before cooking will remove the muscle easily.

My husband cooked this for me after a long day at work. I am speechless.  This is AMAZING!  Make sure you buy fresh scallops.  It makes all the difference.  Easy, special, and delicious!
