-1 can (15 to 19 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
-1 can (15 1/4 to 16 ounces) whole-kernel corn, drained
-1/4 cup finely chopped red onion

In large bowl, mix black beans, corn, onion, chopped cilantro, limejuice, and 1/4-teaspoon salt. Set black-bean salsa aside. Rinse scallops with cold running water to remove sand from crevices pat dry with paper towels. In medium bowl, mix chili powder, sugar, and remaining 1/4-teaspoon salt add scallops, tossing to coat.

Arrange black-bean salsa and scallops on dinner plates garnish with cilantro leaves and red chilies. Serve with lime wedges if you like.
