Heartbreaking Dawns Jalapeno Pineapple Hot Sauce Baked Panko Crusted Scallops with Israeli Pearl Couscous and Craisins Infused with Blueberry Juice

Cooking for me is all about love. Love for friends and family. Healthy, simple, inspired recipes for everyday celebrations.

This is very similar to a recent recipe I posted, but better--much better. The spicy Heartbreaking Dawns Jalapeno Pineapple sauce  complimented with the sweet craisins in pearl couscous resulted in an experience that I wish I could have shared with you the night Susan and I sat down to dinner. This, the photo and the recipe, will, I hope, inspire you. So go online and get some hot sauces from Heartbreaking Dawns and get cooking!

Heartbreaking Dawns Jalapeno Pineapple Panko Crusted Scallops from Bruce's Kitchen.


1 pound sea scallops
1/3 cup Panko crumbs
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
salt & pepper
1/4 cup Heartbreaking Dawns Jalapeno Pineapple Hot Sauce, gently warmed

Combine lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, and Panko crumbs. Lightly grease baking dish. Add scallops. Sprinkle Panko mixture on top of scallops. Cook in a 425 pre-heated over for 15 minutes.

I served the scallops on top of the couscous and I drizzled the Jalapeno Pineapple Sauce on top of the scallops.



  1. Ryan would LOVE this sauce. He loves pineapple, and all things spicy.

    What other dishes have you used it on?

  2. Mixed in with meatloaf. Tilapia with orange juice and orange zest. Turkey Burgers. It IS so GOOD!

    And it is from the daughter of a friend from my childhood in Teaneck, NJ!!!

    1. Hey Bruce! Very random, but I am going through years of clippings and notes (switching from PC to MAC - Onenote to Evernote) and I came across this post. Wanted to say hello! I loved reading about and being inspired by all of your recipes (and pictures). I miss the blogging days :(. Are you on Instagram? Hope you and Susan are well.

    "commentary to give you paws..."

  4. Okay, I will definitely order it! Today!

  5. Scallops, Lemon AND Couscous. I'm sold. I want to try it with and without the Pineapple...just to see.

  6. p.s. I intended to purchase this way back when, but never did (hence, my new and improved 'note system' ;)). But I just checked to see if it is still a/v and it is! Purchased and can't wait to try... Still, right up Ryan's ally (and mine).
