This light and quick entree is elegant enough for guests but filled with wonderful flavor. A bag of scallops can be purchased from the freezer case; they defrost in minutes. This recently published recipe came from the Arizona Daily Star newspaper. We loved it and I think you will too. Serve with my Rice with Carrots; they look lovely together. Hope one of you gets a photo of it for me (hint, hint:)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse and drain scallops, and pat dry with a paper towel. Toss with the curry powder, coating all sides.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet on high and spray with olive oil. Saute scallops 3 minutes per side. Add salt and pepper to taste and remove to a bowl.
  3. Add 1/4 cup water and the apricot jam to the skillet; simmer 30 seconds, stirring to melt jam. Add cream and simmer 1 minute to thicken. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Spoon sauce over scallops and sprinkle scallions on top.
