Mango Prosciutto Scallop Salad

Jump to recipe

Sweet and succulent mangoes, crispy and salty prosciutto, and seared scallops combined in this lovely summer salad.

Hello, everyone. I hope this week has been treating you well so far. I am going to keep it sweet and short (once again) this time because of three reasons:

  1. We’re having a short (3-day) trip this Friday, so I am currently planning the route and other exciting things. We’ve already visited our neighbour New Brunswick this summer, and now it’s time to visit another one – Prince Edward Island. We have not visited PEI since 2015, and I am super excited. Perhaps, I can show you some photos later, if you don’t mind;
  2. Way too hot here (Yes, again!);
  3. This Mango Prosciutto Scallop salad – I hope you like this idea so much that you’d run in the kitchen as soon as you’ve seen this post. :)

It is hard to describe how delicious this Mango Prosciutto Scallop salad is! The combination of seared scallops (Which are naturally slightly sweet) and sweet juicy mangoes is so good. Avocados add that extra creamy texture while salty crispy prosciutto balances all these sweet notes. The result? Bingo!

Have you ever seared scallops? If you watched the TV show Hell’s Kitchen, you probably remember that chef Gordon Ramsay would get infuriated with participants’ inability to properly handle scallops almost in every episode. I used to think searing scallops is something too complicated. It is not indeed! You only need a hot pan, some fat (I love the combo of butter and olive oil), and just 3-4 minutes of patience. A piece of cake, my friends. Actually, the searing on my scallops this time is not impeccable’ however, I don’t think Mr. Ramsay would scream at me…but who knows haha!

I hope you guys try this Mango Prosciutto Scallop soon. If that happens, please let me know what you think about the recipe.

See you next week.

    I’ve never been to PEI but it’s on my bucket list. I’ve always wanted to go! I’m a little jealous that you’re so close to so many pretty destinations. BUT at least I can make up for that jealousy with this salad. Those seared scallops look fantastic, Ben! Now I have a craving!

  3. Neil says:

    This is indeed a lovely salad Ben. I’m very familiar with scallops as they’re plentiful and amazing here in Scotland, but I’m not so familiar with combining them with mango. However my taste buds are telling me right now how delicious that would be! Yum! Hope you guys had an amazing trip Ben!

    Safe travels to ya and yay for nice weather :)

    Such a delicious summer salad, Ben! You had me at seared scallops, but then there are all of those other flavors I love too – tangy mango, buttery avocado, peppery arugula, and salty prosciutto. Heavenly!

    Have a wonderful time on your getaway!
