    I love scallops, but I’m wary towards towards the mango. I’m just not a fan of putting fruit into savory dishes.

    Oh my gosh – this looks so good. I’m going to share with one of my sons. He is a great cook and his wife loves mangos…and salsa of any kind. For her, the hotter the better.

    The mango salsa gives a great compliment to the scallops. Throw a bit of habenero in there and you’ve got a real treat
