Start by using this quick, easy and flavorful recipe from Epicurious for the Coconut Green Curry Sauce.

In addition to the ingredients in the above recipe, you will need for 4 people:

2 cups of sushi rice
1/8 to 1/4 a pound of scallops for each person
1 handful of cilantro
1 medium tomato
1 avocado
1 lime
2 plantains

After you make the sauce (keep it warm), prepare the sushi rice.

Dice a tomato, chop a handful of cilantro, dice an avocado and cut a wedge of lime for each bowl.

Then slice the plantains and then fry in peanut or vegetable oil over high until golden brown. Remove to a plate lined with paper towels and sprinkle with salt.

Season scallops with salt and pepper and sear over high heat in a little butter for about 1.5 minutes per side until they are a nice golden color and remove from heat.

Fill bowl with rice and top with scallops, tomato, avocado, cilantro and pour sauce over the top. Garnish with the plantains.
