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.
