Stir-fried scallops with mango and cherry

The mango, when ripe, is a perfect fruit to eat as a flavourful dessert. Picked unripe, though, it takes on a completely different role: to offer a pleasantly sour fragrance to any dish. It is most commonly found in Thai dishes, cooked alongside pickles and flavourful meats. Take pleasure in the fruity flavouring of this seafood dish: fresh scallops that are stir-fried to perfection in a combination of young mango strips and diced cherries, alongside other varied, yet completely complementary flavours.
