It’s hard to pick up a dinner menu these days that doesn’t feature scallops in some form – from sautéed in olive oil to drenched in browned butter and coated with panko crumbs.

The Grill at Quail Creek, a restaurant at the Robson Resort Community in Green Valley, offers a pan-seared scallop dish that executive chef Aris Cabrera says is the restaurant’s most popular menu item. “I really love the contrast with the sweetness and the spiciness and the earthy flavors of ginger and lemongrass,” he says.

There are many ways to eat fresh peaches, but have you ever thought about grilling them? This week, executive chef Robert Nixon of Toscana’s Restaurant & Lounge at PebbleCreek (Robson Resort Communities), offers up his grilled Arizona Peach Flatbread recipe.

The recipe calls for pizza dough, which you can pick up at Trader Joe’s in lieu of making it yourself, but Nixon says you can also use lavosh or French bread. Arizona peaches are coming into season, so it’s the perfect time to for some local fruit love. “The season is about two months,” he says. “All the farmers’ markets are going to have them soon.”
