  • 2 dozen fresh scallops
  • 2T vegetable oil
  • avocado chilled and diced
  • tomatoes, peeled and diced
  • sun-dried tomato
  • white onion, finely diced

  • the juice of a lime wedge
  • your choice of hot sauce (optional)


  1. Rinse scallops and remove tendon.
  2. Dice avocado, tomato, sun-dried tomato, and onion into smal pieces and set aside. Keeping the avocados chilled until slicing makes dicing them into small pieces easier.

  5. Add scallops and cook for ~1.5min.
  6. When browned on both sides, remove scallops to pre-warmed plates.

  8. Squeeze a few drops lime juice over each plate.
  9. Add hot sauce and cilantro to garnish.
