Diabetic Recipes - Main Dish


Source: Magic Menus for People with Diabetes


2 tbsp margarine
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tbsp white wine
2-4 tbsp lemon juice (to taste)
1-1/2 pound bay scallops (shrimp or lobster chunks may be substituted)
1/3 c Parmesan cheese


Set oven to broil. Place margarine in microwave-safe dish and melt. Add garlic, wine (much of the alcohol will evaporate, leaving only the flavor), lemon, and scallops. Microwave on high for 4 minutes, stirring once after 2 minutes. Place scallops on an individual serving dish that is ovenproof. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and place under broiler until cheese is browned.

Makes 4 Servings.
