Sea scallops are the perfect dinner option since they are extremely quick to cook and extremely healthy. While scallops can be expensive, stores will often have them on sale for a much more reasonable price. Crispy Curry Scallops, adapted from Cooking Light, takes mere minutes to make and yields decadent golden scallops with a hint of exotic spice.

1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground ginger
