  • 1 pound scallops

  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice or concentrate

  • ¼ cup Holland House® Sherry Cooking Wine

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

  • cup butter

  • 1 cup thinly sliced carrots

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms

  • ¾ teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 (6 ounce) package frozen pea pods, thawed

  • ¼ cup diagonally sliced green onions

  • Hot cooked rice


  1. If scallops are large, slice them in half crosswise to make thin medallions. Combine scallops and lemon juice in a shallow baking dish; cover and refrigerate 30 minutes. When finished marinating, stir in sherry cooking wine and cornstarch.

  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over high heat. Add carrots and garlic; cook about 1 minute. Add mushrooms and thyme; cook and stir about 3 minutes. Stir in scallop mixture; cook until scallops are opaque, about 4 minutes. Stir in pea pods and green onions; heat through. Serve over hot cooked rice.
