Recipe by Bert's Kitchen Witch
Yet another way to use my ever so versatile Asian-Apricot Sauce. The flavor of the sauce lends itself well to seafood. (If scallops are unavailable, or you just choose not to use them, just double the amount of shrimp in the recipe.)

- 1 lb large scallop
- 1 cup fresh mushrooms (sliced)
- 1 large white onion (sliced)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt

- 4 cups rice (cooked)
- 3 garlic cloves (minced finely)
- 3⁄4 cup apricot nectar
- 2⁄3 cup apricot preserves
