6 servings as a main dish


  1. Sauté onion in the 2 teaspoons hot oil in nonstick pan over medium-high heat. When onion softens, add curry.
  2. Add the rice, stock and saffron or turmeric, stirring well. Reduce heat, and simmer the rice, covered, for 17 minutes total, until liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the wine; add the sausage, and cook about 10 minutes, until the sausage is firm to the touch; remove. Add the scallops and cook 2 or 3 minutes, depending on size. Slice the sausage 1/4 inch thick, removing casing if it is too thick to eat.
  4. Whisk together the 3 tablespoons oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, rosemary and parsley in a bowl large enough to hold all the ingredients. Add the rice, shrimp, scallops, sausage and peppers and chill a couple of hours, or overnight. To serve, arrange the arugula on each of six plates and mound the salad on top of the arugula.
