This dish is adapted from one in Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill cookbook. This is an appetizer that I adapted from the book. My daughter recently ate at the restaurant in Las Vegas and raved about the food so I decided to get the cookbook and play with some of the dishes. The original called for using smoked salmon. Since I served this to my brother and his wife neither of which care for cold smoked salmon I changed the protein to shrimp and scallops. I also used Jalapeno pepper instead of Serrano as my wife can't tolerate too much heat. The pancakes freeze quite well and the mango crema can be made ahead time so much of the dish can be done early in the day. I made crème fraiche the day before from scratch but Mexican Crema or sour cream will work fine as well. By adding more protein the dish could easily double as a main course. For a wine we had Jacuzzi Family Vineyards 2010 Carneros Tocai Friulano which has bright acidity and flavors of mandarin orange, lime and pineapple.
