Curried Scallops

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sara 76

This is my favourite recipe for curried scallops. It is creamy and rich, with a nice tangy flavour to the sauce. This is the mixture I use for my curried scallop pies, or you can just serve it over rice.

Yum! A really great curry for scallops, fairly mild from a heat point of view so it's doesn't overpower them but nice and creamy and the lemon gives it a nice twist so not too boring either. Would be a really good family recipe I feel suiting a wide range of tastes, my GF is not so much into hot curries and loved them while I found the flavours subtle but interesting so loved it as well.
