  • 5 teaspoons chopped shallots

  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped pimientos
  • 10 ounces fresh spinach, washed and dried thoroughly
  • 6 tablespoons white wine
  • 3 teaspoons chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 rings of red pepper


Sweat shallots in 2 tablespoons butter just till tender. Add 6 tablespoons butter and rest of ingredients, cover, and steam until scallops are cooked, stirring occasionally. (Scallops do not take long to cook, so watch them closely.) Remove from heat, stir in remaining 1 tablespoon butter, and serve.
