    Directions:
    Bring salted water to a boil in a covered stockpot. Add squash; cook 13 to 15 minutes or until very tender. Drain well. 

    Transfer to food processor along with butter, cayenne, ⅛ teaspoon ground ginger, and ⅛ teaspoon salt.

    While squash cooks, pat scallops dry with paper towels. In small shallow bowl, combine coriander, cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon ginger, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. 

    Sprinkle scallops with ¼ teaspoon salt to season both sides. Press 1 side of each scallop into spice mixture; set aside, spice sides up.

    In 12-inch skillet, heat oil on medium-high to a point just below smoking. 

    Add scallops, spice sides down. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until browned. Turn over; cook 2 minutes or until golden brown and opaque in center. Remove from heat.

    Purée squash until smooth. Divide between serving plates, and top with scallops. 

    Garnish with chives. Grab your favorite wine or gluten-free beer, and dig in.

    This is a wonderfully sweet way to prepare scallops. The integrity of the scallops is well-maintained by giving them a light sear on each side, allowing them to hold their own against the tangy citrus sauce. This is a dish that utilizes both the juice and the zest of the fruit along with the savory aroma of the cider and coriander which work synchronously to create powerful dimension in the mouth. Because the quinoa cooks on its own, this recipe does not take long and makes for a beautiful presentation.
    Ingredients:
    1 ½ pounds sea scallops
    4 tangerines
    2 oranges
    1 small lemon
    1 cup quinoa, rinsed
    2 ¼ cups water
    2 tablespoons apple c...

    These grilled scallops are a snap to make. They dazzle they...
