Scallops with Broccoli and Garlic
I love garlic, and I think it goes perfectly with broccoli and scallops. This recipe was very simple. I didn’t make a sauce, but you certainly could.
Bay Scallops with Broccoli and GarlicIngredients
I didn’t measure amounts. Just use enough scallops and broccoli for your size family and adjust the other ingredients accordingly.
- scallops, rinsed and drained (I used 1 1/2 lbs.)
- fresh broccoli, cut
- minced garlic (I used about 1 Tb.)
- olive oil
In a large skillet, heat some olive oil and add the scallops. I used frozen bay scallops which were small so I just used a spatula and stirred them some until cooked through. If using large scallops, cook them on one side, them turn them and cook the other side. Remove the scallops from the pan using a slotted spoon. Pour out any liquid.
Add a little more olive oil and add the broccoli. Stir fry until tender but crisp. Move the broccoli to the edge of the pan and add about 2-3 tablespoons butter in the center. Add the garlic and stir occasionally as it cooks, about 1 minute. Return the scallops to the pan and mix them with the garlic and butter. Stir the broccoli in from the sides of the pan.
I served it over a mix of white rice and red quinoa.
I also haven't tried doing much with quinoa either, I've only made it once. I suppose I should give both a good go.
I love scallops but haven't made them lately...thanks for sharing your recipe!
Congrats on your son's graduation! Such a huge occasion for all.
