Peach and Ginger Scallops

Dish Description

These flavourful morsels are a gift from the sea.  The mild flavour of the scallops infused with the sweet and spicy flavours of the other distinctive ingredients produces a mouthwatering dish.  SERVES 2

1 large shallot, mnced

1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger root

2 large peaches, peeled, cored and coarsely chopped

2 pounds or (1.2 kilograms) of sea scallops
