    Prepared in advance, these cook quickly so you can relax & mingle with your guests at your tapas party! If you can't find Rioja, substitute with another (preferably Spanish) red wine.

      WOW! This was wondeful! I like to try new recipes with ingredient combinations I haven't had before - scallops, red wine and saffron - what a combo! I doubled the recipe to serve as an entree with brown rice. I didn't have shallots, so I substituted half an onion (for the double recipe) and it was fine. I made Auberge Creamed Carrots for a vegetable. The cooking time was right-on also. My wife is very picky about overcooked seafood = she loved it also and thought it was cooked just right! A wondeful dinner - thanks CountryLady!

      Made this for tapas night and it was a big disappointment, neither myself or guests liked it. I am not sure if I did something wrong, the quality of my scallops, just not sure. I don't think I would make again-sorry

      Wow these were very yummy. Mine came out purple hahaha. I wonder if I should have seared the scallops first or if it was just the type of wine being used. I served this up with some jasmine rice (with a little tiny bit of saffron cooked into it). I can't wait to experiment a little with this recipe.
