Scallops with Mango Chutney: Another Review







Mango Chutney.
Another cool product from Vom Fass, part of a bunch of interesting stuff Mr Teoh (GM) so kindly passed on to me for a review.

As with the raspberry chutney, this had all the glorious aroma of the fruit, it would be such a shame to try use it in a cooked recipe as a sauce or something. I was very tempted to use it as a Thai styled topping with a fried fish dish, or in another sweet, or a pie, or, or ... So many ideas, so little chutney! Big hint, Mr Teoh! :D

So, again, I've kept it simple, with clean, fresh flavors to complement.



INGREDIENTS

Fresh scallops
Red onions
Red chillies
Coriander leaves
Mango chutney (Vom Fass, of course, duh)
A little oil to sear the scallops


METHOD

Peel and dice the onions.
Discard seeds and white membranes of chillies. Chop finely.
Chop the coriander leaves.
Mix chutney, onions, chillies and coriander together.
Leave in the fridge for the flavors to infuse while you prepare the scallops.
Heat a non-stick pan.
Brush scallops with a little oil. Sear scallops until you get a golden brown crust.
Flip and do the same for the other side. (About a minute or so each side, depending on the thickness of your scallops).
Remove from pan. (*Do not overcook, scallops will continue to cook after you take them off the heat).
Pile chutney mix on top and devour immediately!
(*Scallops get rubbery if you wait too long to serve them).

  3. Hot sweet chutney sounds excellent. I suppose this chutney is not already hot/spicy like those Indian mango chutneys. Never tried with raw onions, chilli etc, sounds delicious. I love mango chutney, I think I will buy this week. I would love to see more ideas on use of mango chutney, I second the big hint:)

  4. Mango chutney and scallops sound like an ideal combination and they look gorgeous. My home-made hot mango sauce is excellent with seafood, so I'm sure your choice was perfect. You have made me once more want to run to Vom Fass (luckily it's too late today ;-) ) . Although I'm not sure if they have the same chutneys here.

  5. Ping,

    This looks really delicious and light! Seafood and mangos - some of my favorite foods :)

  6. You know, I've never been a massive fan of of scallops. I don't dislike them, I just find they have a very strong "fish-like" flavour... maybe I'm yet to have really good ones, though I love the idea of heaping mango chutney on them... little bit of cilantro, yummy! Looks great Ping :)

  8. It's so handy to have these bottles to create entertaining dishes. Great Christmas gift idea!

  9. Beaautiful review on the mango chutney, Ping...but the scallops made with them are far more divine!!! Love the recipe, and the gorgeous photo:DDD

  10. Lizzy: Thank you very much! Yes, it was a super combination. I'm glad I did this rather than the other fussy stuff.

    easyfoodsmith: Thanks for the buzz :D and thanks for following too.

    3Cookies: This chutney was pretty mild, that's why I decided to add the extra chillies for the "zing". Quite a different flavor from the indian mango chutney. Thanks for the support. Hope Mr Teoh is reading this. ;)

  11. Sissi: Thank you! Yes, it was a very good combination indeed. I'd do this again, perhaps even with shrimp. Vom Fass will be happy to know I've made at least one person want to go running to their store :D I'm sure you'll be able to get the same chutney over there, since it's isn't Malaysian made but imported from Germany.

    Lin: Hiya! Yup, light and refreshing and quite satisfying, I might add :D

    Charles: Hmm .. maybe you must have had some frozen ones. Really fresh ones are pretty "clean" tasting. Yes, the cilantro was important here. Thanks, Charles!

    Amanda: Haha! You'll be surprised at some of the questions I've been asked before even when all the info is all there.

    Veronica's Kitchen: Nice, cute sizes. Wish they came in bigger bottles tho :D But as you said ... great as gifts. Thanks for the visit.

    Elisabeth: Hello there and thank you very much, Elisabeth.

  12. OooOOOoOoOoo scallops!!! *swallows drool*

    Now I know what I am serving at at least one of the season's parties!!! I adore scallops, and having just the right sauce to set them off is what is always tricky (my normal mode is butter, garlic, lemon, but this sounds gorgeous and different).

    I will look for a good chutney, but if not I may do a raw mango salsa with onion, chili and coriander! This totally begs for a bottle of light, refreshing bubbly to have alongside!

  13. Hiya, V. I'd be so totally honored if you do make any of my recipes. The regular butter, garlic, lemon is also my usual mode and really is quite good too. Just wanted to be different for this one. Raw mango salsa would work as well. And, yes, definitely a bottle of bubbly to go with. Cheers!

  18. That's a great photo. I love scallops and we can't get them in this part of Turkey as the waters are too warm. See, cold ocean has a purpose. :) You've made that mango chutney look yummy, too.

  33. Von: Hi! Mangoes are so good with seafood. his was good with the added stuff to give it some "punch". Thanks for coming by.

    QPC: Wakakakakakaka!!! Your cheng, cheng and more chengs really had me rolling on the floor! Thank you so much ... for the wishes and for making me laugh so much :D. Oh, just a note ... this chutney was quite different from the Indian Chutney, it's a lot milder in flavor and spices but I guess the Indian ones would work just as well. Let me know how it turns out.

    Kristen: Thank you, Kristen. Same here. I can't remember the last time I had scallops. This was a good excuse to indulge a little :D
