¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon seasoned salt

1 pound bay scallops or small sea scallops

In

Place

a wire rack or several custard cups on the steamer to prop up the plate.  Place the plate of vegetables on the rack.  Steam the vegetables on the rack.  Steam the vegetables on the rack.  Steam the vegetables covered, until the carrots are crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes

Meanwhile

in a cup, combine salt, tarragon, and cayenne pepper.  In a medium size bowl, place scallops and oil, toss to coat.  Sprinkle the scallops with the salt mixture and toss again to coat evenly.
