Had a great day out today. Took the kids to the park and being a dork I climbed up a skinny tree pretending I was after a coconut.
Had a hell of a craving all day for a random handful of items. Papaya, balsamic, scallops, bacon, cilantro, avocado and lemons....
well for the most part I managed to put most of it all together in one delicious dish!
Introducing Pan seared scallops with a Spicy papaya salsa.
Cut and deseed a papaya
Chop and place in a bowl. Add 1 tbs of Lime juice, chives and a pinch of crushed red pepper. Set aside
Pan Sear Scallops in coconut butter on Med High heat for several minutes each side
Served over lettuce with a little balsamic reduction drizzled and Avocado sprinkled with lemon Juice.
I also had a craving for Butternut squash soup. I had some in the pantry from trader joes....it did have evaporated cane juice in it....shhhhhh don't tell on me.
