Israeli Couscous Pilaf

1. Slice leeks in half lengthwise, and cut into 1/2-inch dice.

2. In a stockpot, heat oil over medium heat. Add leeks and garlic; sauté, stirring, until translucent, about 7 minutes.

Add jalapeño, carrots, spices, and salt; lower heat to medium low, and cook until carrots are almost tender, 4 to 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes, wine, and 1 cup water.

Bring to a boil, and lower heat to medium; cook 5 minutes.

3. Stir in shrimp and scallops; cook until just opaque, 4 to 6 minutes.

Remove from heat, add cilantro, and serve over Israeli couscous pilaf.
