“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:)”

  1. Rinse and drain scallops, and pat dry with a paper towel. Toss with the curry powder, coating all sides.
