In the spirit of eating healthy (but still hoping for tasty dishes) I made scallop stir fry this week.  Hubby was given a free crab at the grocery store because they had cooked extra and needed to sell them, so that was also added to dinner.  Here's what you'll need:

4 carrots chopped
1 head of brocolli chopped
10-15 scallops
1 cooked crab (if desired)
Rice noodles
1 egg
Soya sauce
1 tbsp butter or margarine

Begin by cooking the rice noodles.  Boil a pot of water and cook the noodles for approximately 15 minutes.  Rinse in cold water and drain.  

While the noodles are cooking, place the carrots, brocolli, and cooked crab in a frying pan.  Add water to this pan and turn the burner onto medium/high heat.  Let the vegetables steam until cooked and then drain off the excess water.

In another pan, melt 1 tbsp of butter or margarine and add the scallops.  Season with pepper (nobody needs extra salt, especially when we're going to be using soya sauce)!  Fry the scallops until they are opaque.  Then add them to the carrots/brocolli/crab pan.  Also put the rice noodles in this pan.

Push the vegetables and noodles to the side of the pan leaving room for the egg.  Scramble the egg and then mix with the other ingredients.  Add some soya sauce for flavouring and keep in mind a little goes a long way.

That's it!  A simple, healthy dish with lots of veggies, fish, and an egg!  Yum.
