For the relish: peel the cucumber; cut it in half lengthwise, seed it and slice it thin crosswise. Bring first 4 ingredients plus 1/2 cup water to boil in a nonreactive saucepan; simmer until liquid reduces to 1/2 cup, about 10 minutes. Strain mixture into a nonreactive bowl and cool it lightly; discard solids. Stir in next 7 ingredients plus 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon white pepper.

Sprinkle scallops with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon white pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium nonstick skillet. Working in batches to avoid overcrowding and adding remaining oil as necessary, sautÚ scallops, turning once, until seared, about 2 minutes.

Spoon a portion of the Cucumber-Banana Pepper Relish onto each plate. Arrange a portion of scallops over the relish and serve immediately.
Makes 4 appetizer servings.

"Someone who made this recipe definitely knows a thing or two about good pizza! I've come across so many recipes that say they are pizza sauce when it's really some variant of marinara that you would put on pasta...they are not the same. This sauce is thick, robust, and full of flavor and based on the pizza I've had in New York, it is the real deal! My go to recipe from now on!" - dan w.
