Number of Servings: 4


    12 oz Sea Scallops, raw (frozen is fine)

    2 Baby Bok Choy, sliced (celery or swiss chard make good substitutes)
    2 cups Broccoli, chopped
    1 large Red Repper, sliced

    Brown Rice, cooked, 3 cups (about 1 cup dry)


    1 can Lite Coconut Milk (Taste of Thai is good)
    Fresh Mint & Cilantro leaves, chopped
    Hot peppers to taste (jalapeno, red chilis, or habaneros could all work, depending on your tolerance)


Thaw scallops under cold water

Prepare rice according to package instructions (remember brown rice takes 45 minutes to 1 hour, so you can prep everything else while the rice cooks)

Slice vegetables and stir fry in a VERY hot pan, preferably non stick (but about 2 tsps of oil should do it)

Meanwhile, start the sauce - simmer 1 can of lite coconut milk with the fresh herbs and hot peppers, if using. If desired, thin with chicken or vegetable broth.

Last, the scallops:

Preheat a good skillet on high heat.

Place scallops in a single layer in the pan, being careful to leave enough room for flipping.

Sear for about 90 seconds, not allowing the scallops to cook through (they'll turn opaque), then flip and sear other side for equal amount of time.

The scallops should be slightly charred and just done. Don't overcook - they'll get rubbery.

Divide rice into four servings, top with stir fried vegetables, and place 3 oz each of the scallops on each. Top with sauce and hot peppers if using.
