This is a great recipe if you are having guests over for dinner. Easy to make, impressive to serve. I split the sauce in half -- the first half I kept as a finely diced salsa, the second half I pureed in a blender to make more of a sauce. I presented the scallops by first making a small pool of sauce, layering the scallops on top, and then finally garnishing the scallops with the salsa. It looked nice and added some nice flavor to the scallops (which I choose not to coat with flour before frying).

Like others, I skipped flouring the scallops and just seared them over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes per side. Also, as others suggested, I made half of the papaya mix into a salsa, and I pureed the other half into a sauce. This recipe makes LOADS of the papaya sauce, so even if you halve it, you will have plenty to work with. We really enjoyed this with Goldy's Special Salad (found on allrecipes.com).

This meal was absolutely delicious. The only thing we did different was lightly simmer the papaya sauce for about (5) minutes to make it blend together. Big hit.
