8 ounces bay scallops
2 ounces butter
2 Tablespoons SWEET HUNGARIAN PAPRIKA (only)
1 qt. light cream sauce (recipe follows)

Cut lobster meat into 1/2 inch cubes. Put butter in large pan and add paprika and heat slowly. Do not burn. Add

one half of onion, salt pepper and simmer for 20 minutes. Strain. Return to pan and reduce to 1/2)
