Scallop Scallopini!?!?!

Scallop Scallopini

Well, why has the word 'scallop' right there in the beginning of the word 'scallopini'!

Let me explain why I decided to create this recipe for 'Scallop Scallopini', with a little help from McCormick!

I had some scallops that were getting old in the freezer and I had this package of  'McCormick Gourmet Chicken Scaloppine Recipe & Seasoning Mix' in my pantry...

So, I figured why not just substitute the chicken for the scallops and the mushrooms for the peas! It worked perfectly! Check out the McCormick version **here** 

I looked EVERYWHERE for a 'Scallop Scallopini' recipe, but couldn't find one! Why is that? Well, now you have one here!

Scallop Scallopini

3 tablespoons flour
1 McCormick Gourmet™ Garlic & White Wine Chicken Scaloppine Recipe & Seasoning Mix
1 pound small scallops
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup frozen petit peas
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup white wine
1 cup orzo pasta

Mix flour and 2 tablespoons of the Seasoning Mix in shallow dish. Coat scallops with this flour mixture.

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Cook 1/2 of the coated scallops for 3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove from skillet. Repeat with remaining scallops.

Stir peas into skillet, adding additional oil if needed. Cook and stir 3 minutes. Add water, wine and remaining Seasoning Mix. Bring to boil, stirring to release browned bits in bottom of skillet.

Stir in orzo. Place scallops over orzo. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 10 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and orzo is tender. Serve warm.
Serves 4 - 6
