    We haven't tried this yet, but I wanted to post it for ZWT8. I don't often find low-fat southwestern recipes, so I was excited to find this. Prep time includes cooking rice.

      Very enjoyable scallops! The rice is wonderful, and I'll make it again just by itself. I'm a bit of a scallop-a-holic, and this is the first time I've used these seasonings on scallops. Delicious! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT8.

      Really loved this great scallop recipe! The scallops were great of course but the rice makes this special - loved the lime and jalapeno. I used brown rice with great results. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for the Best of 2012 event, recommended by DieniaB
