    TXOLDHAM's Note:

    Found this one in the Dallas Morning News and wanted to save. It is low in fat and calories so it fits in with the AHA suggestion of at least two fish meals a week. We try to do 3 so I am always looking for new recipes to incorporate.

      Reviewed: August 11, 2010. It looks like my rating did not post when I took the photo. Very good! My husband cooked the scallops longer than recommended to his desired level of doneness. I added some shrimp for me as I am not a fan of scallops. The flavor is great!

      Really delicious!!! This ginger sauce reduction is great with a gingery bite!! It is actually a little hot with all the fresh ginger in the sauce (which I love)! I might add a little orange juice next time to balance that out but it was really outstanding!! Used a 2006 Yalumba Eden Valley of Australia Wild Ferment chardonnay in the sauce and then paired that with the meal. Will make again, thanks for posting!!

      So good, so quick, so satisfying (particularly if you're a ginger fan). We like them atop a little angel hair pasta, lightly olive- oiled. Thanks for a memorable meal that can be made in minutes.
