    Puree the mangos with a small amount of seasoned rice wine vinegar, minced ginger root, garlic and shallot, the juice of one lime (you may want more, depending on how much puree you have) and a little chili paste. The garlic, ginger and shallot should be sweated first. Add a little honey if the puree needs a touch of sweetness. Strain the puree after blending and serve under seared or grilled scallops.

      That sounds AMAZING, girl!!! My MiL & I were looking at this post about 2 hours ago, trying to figure out what the OP meant, and what to suggest, and I guess we just got too busy with the kids and other posts.

      But she (my MiL) started to say, puree and use under the seared scallops, but I think you hit the nail on the head. I love all of the aromatics you suggest. Sounds awesome.

      Mash up mango with some cayenne, ginger juice, apple cider vinegar and sea salt. Don't bother pureeing it.

        I peeled 3 soft mangos, the juice of a lemon and a tbl of sugar and put all in the blender. It was perfectm I was able to put it in a squeeze bottle.

        I also reduced a cup each of OJ and pom juice, I added a dash of salt and tbl of sugar and a dash of balsmic. I reduced to a 1/4 cup and also put it in a squeeze bottle and served the dish of a plate of wilted spinach.

            It was and very quick and easy.

            I just put the whole leaf spinache on the plate and microwave for 30-60 seconds.

            The scallops cook in 4-5 minutes.
