Scallops with Broccoli, Garlic, and Wine

I don’t often cook with wine.  I am not a big fan.  It tends to overpower if not used correctly.  Tonight however I was sipping on a Moscato Spumante.  I am sure this would be frowned upon for cooking, but it was what I was having at the time.  I however rather enjoyed the sweet flavor with the seafood.  A dry cooking wine might be more suitable if desired, but if you are feeling adventurous use any kind you like to drink.

Scallops with Broccoli, Garlic, and Wine

  • 1 head broccoli cut into florets
  • 2 cloves garlic ~ mince
  • 1 jalapeno ~ finely diced
  • 1 pound scallops
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 cup white wine ~ something you like the flavor of
  • 1/2 cup cooked rice
  • 1/4 tsp thyme

In skillet with 1/2 cup water over medium heat add broccoli, garlic, and jalapeno.

Cook for about 4 minutes and remove from skillet; set aside.  Season scallops with salt, pepper, and paprika.

In same skillet add scallops.  Cook for about 3 minutes; drain off excess juices if desired and return to pan cooking an additional 2 minutes.  Add wine, stir in rice, thyme, and cooked broccoli.  Heat through and serve.
