Spicy Scallops Recipe


Scallops are great cooked in foil!


2 large shallots, minced
4 jalapeño or other small hot chiles or to taste, deveined, seeded, and minced
2 teaspoons high-quality reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 cup chopped tomato
16 large sea scallops

Preheat the oven to 450. Mix together the shallots, chiles, soy sauce, oil, and tomato. Tear four squares of aluminum foil and place four scallops in the center of each piece.  Top with the sauce; fold and seal the packages. Bake until the scallops are opaque outside and barely warm in the center, 10 to 15 minutes. Makes 4 Servings.

Fiber Cake Muffins

Try these homemade fiber cakes — similar to those at TJs, only better and less costly.  You won’t feel hungry after eating one, and you get the fiber you need for under 100 calories.



2 cups wheat bran
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 egg
1 cup apple juice
2 tsp honey
6 dried prunes, cut into small pieces
1 cup blueberries

Pre-heat oven to 400. Mix dry ingredients (save prunes & blueberries until end), then mix and add wet ingredients. Stir until incorporated, then add prunes and blueberries and fold in. Spoon mixture into muffin tin lined with paper cups — resulting muffin will not rise appreciably & retains same profile. Bake for 20-22 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.  Refrigerate or freeze (recommendation:  microwave before eating to bring out the flavor and texture). Makes about 8 muffins.
