Scallops aren't the cheapest seafood on the market, but their buttery flavor is worth the expense. This is a simple, wholesome recipe that will satisfy, whether it is just you or guests. I buy frozen scallops from the grocer, thaw them, and they work just fine. For the rice I like to use a quick-cooking Rice Select royal blend--texmati white, brown, wild, and red for some variety. Some of the grains are nutty flavored and slightly al dente, which contrasts with the rest of the ingredients. Serve the same wine you cook with: a dry chablis is recommended. Serve with a vegetable or other side dish of your choice. Adapted from "Cooking in a Casserole" (1967) by Robert C. Ackart, esq.
