Citrus Scallops I
May 08, 2002

Ok this was really good.. really really good! It was extremely quick and easy to make, too. I made a couple minor changes... i didn't have any cilantro (well ok i admit it, i *did*, but... it had spent too much time mashed in the back of my crisper *L*). So i used a big handful of baby spinach. Nice mild flavour and great color combination with the red pepper. I also had to used lemon zest/juice, and i tossed in a small minced garlic clove for extra zing. Some reviewers have commented on sourness... not a problem in my case.. i found the dish quite sweet, actually (probably depends a lot on the zippiness of the oranges used, and maybe lime juice would have been tarter than the lemon i used?). I was thinking a few pitted/chopped kalamata olives might have made a nice garnish.... i'll try that next time, and yes there will be a next time. Thanks for the great recipe... it's a keeper!
