Entered for safe-keeping. Scallops and sweet potatoes fit my WW and cholesterol-reduction diet very nicely. Each serving is 4 pts. From WW's "Simply the Best All American".

Ingredients Nutrition


  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Pierce the potatoes in several places.
  3. Bake sweet potatoes until tender, about 45 minutes.
  4. Halve the potatoes lengthwise, and scoop the pulp into a medium bowl.
  5. Stir in the milk, ginger, salt and pepper.
  6. Beat with an electric mixer at low speed until blended and smooth; keep warm.
  8. Heat the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until the butter just begins to brown slightly.
  9. Add the scallops, cook, turning once, until browned on the outside, and just opaque in the center, about 1 minute on each side.
  10. Sprinkle with the scallions and serve with the potatoes.

Great dinner! Served with salad for a very filling meal. With the new Points Plus system this is 6 pts, adding my salad and fruit for dessert - still very do-able! Thanks for sharing!

What a great find!

This was a very a wonderful dish. The I chose to add some shrimp to our dish along with the scallops.

What I loved about this dish was not only was it good but you could make this dish during the week for a memorable dinner.
