Curried Coconut Scallops



  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped scallions
  • 3 tablespoons chopped, peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 jalapeno chile, stemmed
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk, stirred well before measuring
  • 2 pounds sea scallops


  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the scallions, ginger, garlic, jalapeno (including the seeds), curry powder and salt and blend into a paste. Add the coconut milk and puree until almost smooth, scraping down the sides of the container often.
  2. Pat the scallops dry and arrange them in a flameproof casserole or skillet just large enough to hold them in a single layer. Drizzle the curry sauce on top, coating the scallops well. The scallops can be prepared up to this point 4 hours in advance, covered and refrigerated.
  3. Heat the broiler with a rack set 6 inches from the heat. Broil the scallops for 8-10 minutes or until browned and just cooked through.
  4. Serve immediately.

Serves 4.
