Holiday Recipe Spectacular – Appetizer – Wasabi-Ginger Crusted Scallops

This could be one of my husband’s favorites…if I ever made it for him instead of always making for dinner parties!  The guy is mad about sea scallops.  If you can pull off this delicious, flavorful hors d’ouever-you will score points with many.  Isn’t that what holiday parties are all about, after all? 😉

Wasabi Crusted Scallops
12 large sea scallops
1 teaspoon ginger, fresh minced
1 tablespoon wasabi paste
1 garlic cloves, fresh minced
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup short-grain rice, cooked and seasoned
2 tablespoons sesame oil

Pineapple-Mango Salsa
1 cup pineapple, fresh diced
1 cup mangoes, fresh diced
1/3 cup cilantro, fresh chopped
3/4 cup red onions, finely diced
3 tablespoons lime juice, fresh squeezed
1 tablespoon orange juice, fresh squeezed
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Stir together all of the salsa ingredients in a large bowl. Place 1/4 cup rice in center of 4 plates using a custard cup or any other method of shaping the rice mold. Place 1/4 of the salsa mixture around the rice on each plate. Mix together ginger, wasabi paste, garlic, olive oil, and salt in another bowl. Heat a large saute pan to medium-high heat with some olive oil.
