another fresh seafood idea

Prepare tomato mixture just before cooking scallops.

In a large bowl, gently mix tomato, onion, lime juice, zest, parsley, salt and cayenne. 

Gently mix in avocado. Set aside.

In a medium skillet, melt butter and heat.  Pat scallops dry and lightly salt and pepper.

Sauté scallops until golden brown on both sides, about 1 minute per side.

Remove from skillet with a slotted spoon.

Add scallops to the tomato-avocado mixture and stir gently. Serve immediately.
