Seared Scallops with Carmelized Mango Slaw

I carmelized some mango, cabbage, and shallots with my favorite balsamic vinegar.

Prep Time

        Prep and cook time: 20 minutes
        Yield: Serves 4


    •    1/8 tsp salt
    •    1 lb scallops
    •    1/4 tsp pepper
    •    4 tbsps olive oil
    •    1 shallot, sliced
    •    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    •    1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
    •    1/2 mango, sliced very thin
    •    1/4 red cabbage, sliced very thin


  1. Season scallops with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Heat a skillet on medium-high heat and add 2 tablespoons olive oil. Once hot, add scallops. Let cook on each side until brown, about 4 minutes.
  2. In a separate skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil on medium heat. Add mango, shallots and cabbage. Cook for about 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add balsamic vinegar and cook for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
  3. Top mango slaw with scallops. Add rice or pasta on the side.
