I am doing the budget friendly meal plan and was surprised to scallops on the list. I am in Central Texas and scallops are $15/lb. Maybe it's a seasonal thing- I have never bought them because they are always so expensive.
Anyway, I got a 2 lb bag of frozen shrimp for $10 and used 1 lb. for this recipe. It came out AMAZING. I wish I had taken a picture, it looked like something from a restaurant.
I would highly recommend this for a gathering, it's so easy but looks and tastes great! Plus it doesn't take long so you can spend more time out of the kitchen. If you aren't sure if your company will like cilantro- I think it would be just as good with fresh parsley or just the lemon juice.

Tasty, Healthy
Delicious! Didn't want it to end!

My husband and I love curry and cilantro, and we really enjoyed this meal. My 2yo liked the rice (I diced up the scallops really small and mixed them into the rice so she ate them too). My 5yo doesn't like cilantro otherwise in think he would have eaten this with no problem. I took the suggestion of serving with roasted carrots (also yummy). I followed the recipe exactly: The scallops cooked up perfectly and tossing the rice with the cilantro, scallions and lemon juice was fast and easy. Lots of great flavor. Will definitely make this again.

Easy, few ingredients, quick
Easy & Tasty - a Family pleaser!

This was so tasty! All my kids liked it (ages 20, 13 & 11) and it was my first time making scallops - their first time eating them!

really easy and quick

Anything with cilantro is awesome to me!!! I just can't get enough cilantro! Love these budget friendly meals!!

Loved it!

We dont eat shell fish, so replace with either chicken or tofu, seemed a bit salty with the chicken, but the carnivour in the house thought it was perfect! The rice was delicious!

Very easy to put together
