Spicy Mango Scallops Recipe

Spicy Mango Scallops Recipe

This sweet and spicy seafood combo gives off enough heat to make the whole family warm up to its great flavors! Be sure to buy the larger sea scallops for this recipe; cooking times would be off for the smaller bay scallops. —Nicole Filizetti, Jacksonville, Florida

"This was pretty darn good. I love scallops and I'm always looking for recipes with them so I can eat them more often. This was quick to put together - used the 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper and because I like things spicy I didn't think this packed much heat."

"I have never had scallops and was reluctant to try the recipe but the mango chutney sounded good so I substituted small shrimp for the scallops and made my own chutney. I loved it but my husband didn't. It was delicious with shrimp."

"Lovely and light enough for a patio dinner party. I used wild rice instead and squeezed the juice from one key lime into the rice with the cilantro instead of sprinkling that on top at the end. Added a nice flavor to the rice."

"I don't eat seafood, but this one went over well with my husband, and he's a man of discerning taste!"
