Why I Love This Recipe

Venetian Shrimp and Scallops (Rachael Ray). The best part of this dish is that it involves mopping your plate with hot, crusty, buttered bread. Perfect for a chilly night.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound sea scallops
1/4 cup flour seasoned with salt and pepper
1 TBSP olive oil
2 TBSP butter
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 large shallot, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cup dry white wine
1 cup chicken broth or stock
1 14 ounce can diced tomatoes in juice
1/4 teaspoon saffron threads
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
12 leaves fresh basil, torn
1 lemon zested
Hot, crusty bread for plate mopping (I recommend that you butter it, hey, live a little),


Lightly coat the sea scallops in flour seasoned with salt and pepper. Discard remaining flour.

Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil and butter. When butter melts into oil, add scallops. Brown scallops 2 minutes on each side, then remove from pan.

Add an additional drizzle of olive oil to the pan and add the garlic, shallots, and crushed red pepper flakes. Reduce heat a little and saute garlic and shallots 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add wine to the pan and free up any pan drippings. Reduce wine one minute, then add stock, tomatoes and saffron threads. When liquids come to a bubble, add shrimp and cook for 3 minutes. Return scallops to the pan and cook shrimp and scallops 2-3 minutes longer. Transfer contents of pan to a warm serving dish and top with basil and and lemon zest. Pass plenty of bread to enjoy the delicous juices.
