Curried Scallops:   244 calories   8.4 g fat   4.9 g fiber   21.4 g protein   12.3 g carbs   108.7 mg Calcium    PB GF   Our son used make his own Indian curry powder, which is fabulous-tasting. He has moved on to Thai curries, but we still cook with his original powder. These scallops are delicious and filling. It is Dear Husband’s recipe.Curried Scallops w: broccoli

¼ pound scallops                                                                                                                                                    2 Tbsp Indian curry powder                                                                                                                              ½ Tbsp butter                                                                                                                                                          1 Tbsp white wine                                                                                                                                                    3 oz broccoli

Trim the scallops of the white tissue which may cling to the side. Slice the scallops so that each disk is half its thickness. Pat them dry with paper towels. Sprinkle a plate with the curry powder and dredge the scallops in the powder, coating on both sides. Choose a heavy saute pan which is just large enough to hold the scallops in one layer. Heat the pan over medium heat and add the butter. Place the scallops in the melted butter and cook on one side to brown them. Turn over and cook further, adding some water [carefully!!] if pan looks as if it will dry out. When the scallops are done [this takes very little time], remove to plate. Turn off heat and add the white wine to the pan to deglaze it, scraping up brown bits. Pour over scallops and plate the broccoli. A very easy and special meal.
