Grilled Scallops with Honeydew-Avocado Salsa

To go with grilled scallops, i create this my own version of salsa verde by combining sweet honeydew and buttery avocado in a fruit salsa.

Prep Time

    •    Prep and cook time: 30 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 4


Ingredients

    •    2 pounds large sea scallops
    •    1 avocado, cut into 1/4 inch dice
    •    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    •    1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
    •    finely grated lime zest, plus 2 tbsps fresh lime juice
    •    1 1/2 pounds honeydew melon, rind removed and melon cut into 1/4 inch dice (2 1/2 cups)


Method

  1. Light a grill. In a large bowl, combine the lime zest and juice with the 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the diced honeydew melon and avocado. Season the salsa with salt and black pepper.
  2. Drizzle the scallops with olive oil and season with salt and black pepper. Grill over moderately high heat, turning once, until nicely charred and just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer the scallops to plates, spoon the salsa alongside and serve.
