Scallop with coriander and mango salsa

The scallop season isn’t over yet and I can’t seem to resist them. They are bigger now, plump and juicy with delicious roe and a great weekend treat. They cook in a few minutes and I have discovered that I love them with salsa.


The other week I served them with a mango and spring onion salsa, this time I added fresh chilli and I loved the additional kick so I thought I would share it.


Mango and coriander salsa

preparation time 10 minutes 

cooking time 0 minutes 

serves 6-8


  • 1 mango, just ripe and cut in to fine cubes
  • 2 red chillies, I left the seeds in but this is optional, chopped
  • 1 handful of coriander, chopped
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • about 1/4 tsp fish sauce

Mix all of the ingredients a bit beforehand and let the flavour set.


Just before you are ready to serve brown the butter in a pan, lightly salt the scallops and pan fry them for about 3 minutes, making sure they are seared and slightly caramelised. Spoon up the salsa and place the scallop on top and you are ready to serve.

Unless you are serving this to someone who doesn’t eat seafood scallops are always popular. I served this as an amuse bouche but if you want to serve it as a starter I would suggest 2-3 scallops per person depending on size.


The chilli went very well with the sweetness of the mango and the buttery texture of the scallop.
