The datil is a fairly hot pepper. Not as hot as a habanero , but quite a bit hotter than a jalapeño. The part I love about them is their smoky flavor. My daughter Kate, who loves hot peppers, does not like their flavor. My other daughter, Jenn, loves them. They were brought to this area by Minorcans, who settled in the St. Augustine area. For a long time they have only been grown and consumed in our small corner of Florida. I believe that now they are a known pepper.

I just dusted the scallops with salt and pepper and seared them. I find, to my taste, that our Atlantic diver-caught scallops are a bit sweeter and meatier than the scallops (St. Jacques) in France.
