Pineapple juice contains an enzyme called bromelain that breaks down protein and, as a bonus, has a tenderizing effect. You can serve this dish after 30 minutes or up to 3 hours of marinating, but 1-1/2 hours is the sweet spot; after 3 hours, the scallops will become so tender that they begin to break apart due to the tenderizing effect of the pineapple. Garnish with plantain chips, diced avocado, and/or diced pineapple.
