2.    Take 8 U-10 Sea Scallops and season with your preferred seasoning. Add to hot pan with the seasoned side down first. Sear the scallops.
3.    While scallops are searing, place 1/4 of a diced pineapple into a mixing bowl. Add 1 small, diced jalapeno, 1 small, diced red bell pepper, 1 small, diced green bell pepper, 1 small, diced purple onion, and 1/2 bunch of chopped cilantro. Mix well and set aside.
