  • 1 lb. medium whole-wheat pasta shells
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil

  • 6 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced on the bias (1 cup)
  • 4 tsp. minced peeled ginger
  • 4 tsp. curry powder
  • 2 cloves cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb. bay scallops
  • 1 small head broccoli, cut up
  • 8 medium plum tomatoes, seeded and diced (2 cups)
  • Salt to taste


Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but firm, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water until cooled. Set aside.

Whisk together yogurt and chicken broth in a small bowl, and set aside.

Heat oil in a wok over high heat until almost smoking. Add scallions, ginger, curry powder and garlic and stir-fry until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add scallops and stir-fry until the flesh is opaque, about 2 minutes.

Add broccoli for 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and the reserved shells and toss until evenly distributed. Add the reserved yogurt mixture and toss again. Cover and cook until heated through, about 30 seconds. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt. Serve immediately

I like to put about half a stick of butter in a pie pan. Add the scallops & kind of roll them around in the butter. Add a layer of flavored breadcrumbs & bake until just barely browned. Don't over cook. Delicious!

Our favorite and only way is to cook them on the grill. This only applies to the larger sea scallops. Seasoning is not necessary. They caramelize from their natural sweetness. Just be careful not to overcook.
