Expert Tips

  • Bay scallops are tiny 1/2-inch diameter scallops from East Coast waters. Bay scallops are more tender and sweet than sea scallops, which measure about 1 1/2 inches. Sea scallops may be used in place of the bay scallops in this recipe. Cut the larger scallops into quarters so they will cook quickly.
  • Fresh broccoli florets can be used in place of the frozen broccoli florets.
