red bell pepper, thinly sliced
green onions, thinly sliced
crushed red pepper flakes
grated lime zest
fresh lime juice
oranges, peeled and segmented
chopped fresh cilantro
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!
Yuck! These citrus flavors did not go well with the scallops at all!
This dish was great! I took one of the reviewer's advice and omitted an orange, and I found that that was smart move. I served this with lo mein noodles and it was a big hit. I'd definitly make this again.
This was a delightfully light yet satisfying way to fix scallops. The dish was quite colorful and the suggestion for preparing pasta was equally good. I think my orange slices were just way too large and too numerous though. I lost the scallops amongst all the oranges. I will cut back on those or cut them into smaller wedges the next time.
I only used half the oil and served over angel hair pasta. A great, quick low-cal meal that my husband and daughter loved! Next time I will half the red pepper to make more mild.
The ingredients in this definitely intrigued me so I planned it as a Sunday night dinner for my husband and I. I cut down on the about of oil slightly and only used 2 oranges instead of the 4 and served it over noodles. I used small bay scallops and will try it with the large sized in the future. A real keeper and would be great to serve to company.
A local store that specializes in fresh seafood was having a sale and they had HUGE scallops, so I went on a search for a great scallop recipe and I FOUND IT!!!! Wow-really flavorful, I added about a 1/4 cup of Yellow Tail Reisling and it was just perfect. My husband is from Florida and he couldn't stop raving about it. I'm going to try shrimp next time.
My husband and I thought this was delicious. The kids wouldn't touch it though, even my brave one. I didn't have green onions or a red pepper so used some white onion and a green pepper. I only used 2 oranges. Very good flavor.
