Recipe 

Pan-Seared Scallops with
Mango Confit, Arugula,
and Lime-Caper Butter

Frakes' original recipe calls for "dayboat scallops," meaning the largest and freshest available from that day's catch. Your key words: "large" and "fresh." Serve with sauvignon blanc or fumé blanc.

Mango Confit

1 large mango, peeled and dicedinto small cubes1 small red bell pepper, peeled anddiced into small cubes1/2 tsp. granulated sugar1/4 tsp. champagne or rice winevinegarSalt to taste

Place ingredients in non-reactive pan and bring to a gentle boil. Simmer 30 seconds. Remove from heat and cool.

Sautéed Scallops

12 large scallops Extra-virgin olive oil for sautéeing Salt and pepper to taste4 cups arugula, loosely packed

Season scallops on both sides and carefully place in very hot pan coated with oil. Sauté for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Flip scallops over and cook another minute, or until just firm to the touch. Set aside on a platter and keep warm. Add arugula to scallop pan and toss until wilted.

Lime-Caper Butter

1 lime, juice and zest2 tsp. capers1/4 tsp. honey8 oz. (one stick) softened butterSalt to taste

Place ingredients in stainless steel bowl and mix with wooden spoon until smooth. Just barely melt in pan (so as not to completely break up the butter). Place 1/4 of the arugula in center of each plate, top with three scallops, then surround with confit, butter mixture, and parsley if desired. Serves 4.
