Substitute 1 pound uncooked peeled and deveined medium shrimp (thawed if frozen) for the scallops. In step 5, cook the shrimp, broccoli and roasted red peppers 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until shrimp are pink.
Scallops are classified as either bay or sea scallops. Bay
scallops are much smaller and sweeter than their counterparts. Sea scallops are more readily available and less expensive than bay scallops.
If sea scallops aren't available you can use 1 pound bay scallops. In step 5, cook the broccoli and peppers 2 minutes and then add the scallops. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until scallops are white and opaque.
Cut the broccoli into 1/2-inch stalks and cut the stalks crosswise into 1-inch pieces.
Scallops are done when they turn white and opaque. Longer cooking results in tough scallops.
