Seared Sea Scallops with Sea Salt and Roasted Corn Salsa

Roasted Corn Salsa

2 fresh corn ears

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

Remove husk and silk from corn and rinse clean. Rub each corn with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Place in a preheated 400 degree oven (rotate corn during baking) for 25 minutes. Remove from oven. Let cool slightly.  Remove corn from the cob by cutting the kernels with a knife and scraping down the cob to get the juices. Set aside

1 plum tomato, peel, remove seeds and cut into small cubes
1 Tablespoon butter
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
1 Tablespoon red onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
Dash cayenne pepper
Juice from 1/2 lime
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Place corn and all the salsa ingredients above in a sauce pan over high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Let cook for approximately 6 minutes.
