Seared Scallops with Warm Tuscan Beans

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds sea scallops
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup prechopped onion
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (19-ounce) can cannellini beans or other white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (6-ounce) package fresh baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle scallops evenly with salt. Add scallops to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until done. Remove scallops from pan; keep warm.

Step 2

Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil and onion to pan; sauté 2 minutes. Add pepper and garlic; cook 20 seconds, stirring constantly. Stir in wine; cook 1 minute or until most of liquid evaporates. Stir in broth and beans; cook 2 minutes. Add spinach; cook 1 minute or until spinach wilts. Remove from heat; stir in basil.

Step 3

Grilled garlic bread is great for dipping into the brothy beans. Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Brush 1 tablespoon olive oil evenly over 4 (1-ounce) slices French bread. Add bread to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Rub one side of each bread slice with cut sides of a halved garlic clove.
