Tender scallops and crunchy cashews star at dinnertime tonight! This recipe calls for sea scallops, which are about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. You could also use their sweeter, smaller relative, the bay scallop. —Joe Hable of Madison, Wisconsin

"This was an excellent dish! It could easily be made with shrimp substituted for the scallops if you wanted too. Next time I may try to add an additional Tablespoon of creamy peanut butter since we really couldn't taste the peanut butter flavor in the sauce. We didn't have cashews, so we crushed some peanuts and sprinkled them generously ontop of the finished dish. We will add this to our recipe box and make again."
