We had this for dinner last night with Kiwidutch's "Cant Get Any Easier Pan-Seared Scallops". I cut the recipe in half and used fresh spinach because that is all I had...I just cooked all the ingredients (except spinach) per instructed and then added the spinach and let it cook down for a few minutes. Wonderful. Thank you.

Delicious and a creative way to serve spinach which we enjoyed with Seared Scallos with Asian Lime-chile sauce recipe#51143. Thanks for sharing this keeper which we will be having again soon!
