Reviews for Curry Scallops and Rice
"Very delicious, my family loved it. The only item I altered was fresh pepper strips rather than frozen. With scallops at $14.99 per pound, I found it very expensive for a weekday dinner."
"I went to Target on my lunch break to purchase ingredients and substituted the rice pilaf with the Archer Farms (Target brand) Curry Potatoes And Lemon Rice...WOW!! Very easy and quick. My two children wolfted it down too!!"
"We substituted fresh red peppers and it was excellent. My husband and 2 year old son ate it all. It definitely goes on my favorites list."
