  • PREPARE SWEET POTATOES:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Pierce the potatoes in several places.
  • Bake sweet potatoes until tender, about 45 minutes.
  • Halve the potatoes lengthwise, and scoop the pulp into a medium bowl.
  • Stir in the milk, ginger, salt and pepper.
  • Beat with an electric mixer at low speed until blended and smooth; keep warm.
  • PREPARE SCALLOPS:

  • Heat the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until the butter just begins to brown slightly.
  • Add the scallops, cook, turning once, until browned on the outside, and just opaque in the center, about 1 minute on each side.
  • Sprinkle with the scallions and serve with the potatoes.

    Looks like a great flavor combo. Inspired to try making sweet potato/ginger gnocchi to have with scallops. Thanks for the inspiration!!

    I have been making this Weight Watcher's recipe for several years. I actually found it from the Weight Watcher's cookbook it originated from. I just uploaded a photo I took of my completed dish based on this recipe. I use orange colored sweet potatoes, and serve the scallops over top of the ginger sweet potato mash sprinkled with the sliced scallions and the brown butter drizzle. It's delicious! I do not bother to bake the sweet potatoes. They cook up much quicker in the microwave with no difference in texture. That makes this a very quick to make elegant meal.

    What a great find!<br/><br/>This was a very a wonderful dish. The I chose to add some shrimp to our dish along with the scallops.<br/><br/>What I loved about this dish was not only was it good but you could make this dish during the week for a memorable dinner.
