Seared Scallops with Blood Orange, Mint and Feta Salsa

By • March 2, 2010 • 0 Comments



Author Notes: I had scallops in the fridge and their sweetness really does compliment the flavors, but this salsa could easily compliment any number of things like a shrimp kebab, a juicy lamb chop or a grilled chicken breast. This is a quick and easy fix to a boring protein.cheese1227
