Serve up the tropics in a sizzling skillet! And don’t forget the salsa: Diced ripe mangos bring the sweetness while minced jalapeños deliver the kick.

Recipe Ingredients

1 large ripe mango, peeled and diced
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 tbsp minced red onion
1 tbsp red bell pepper
1 tbsp minced jalapeño, seeds removed and diced
2 tbsp fresh lime juice

2 tbsp Smart Balance® Buttery Spread
12 sea scallops, cleaned
kosher salt and black pepper
2 cups baby arugula

Recipe Steps

Combine the salsa ingredients and set aside. Season the scallops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Cook scallops until browned on one side, 2 to 3 minutes. Next, flip scallops and cook until opaque throughout—about 60 seconds more, while their centers are still slightly translucent. Serve on a platter with mango salsa.
