Grilled Scallops with Fresh Tomato Salsa

Total time: 15 minutes
     Scallops only take a few minutes to cook They should just go from translucent to opaque.  If you cook them longer they can get tough. We do ours on the barbecue grill but a hot skillet would work just as easily.  Be careful not to crowd and have the pan or grill hot.  Sometimes they give off a bit of liquid and you want them to brown, not steam. These are flavored with chili powder and garlic and finished with a spicy Tomato Chili Salsa.

Note:  Could also be quickly sautéed in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat for about the same amount of time.
