  • Heat remaining 1 tablespoon butter and olive oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir white wine, Parmesan cheese, garlic, and parsley into hot oil and butter. Cook and stir until parsley is tender and wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper.

  • Increase heat to medium-high and add scallops to sauce; cook until scallops just become opaque, 3 to 4 minutes. Divide couscous onto serving plates and top each serving with scallops in sauce. Sprinkle each portion with 1 teaspoon Parmesan cheese and a pinch of fresh parsley.

Very good way to fix scallops. Do all the prep first because cooking needs attention. Served with steamed broccoli with Raspberry Enlightenment and sauvignon blanc. Read More

The scallops came out like a normal scampi but there wasn't enough sauce to give the couscous flavor throughout. Read More

I was skeptical about this dish as I was making it because I didn't think the scallop mixture would have enough flavor to enhance the couscous but I was wrong. It was very tasty. The parsley garnish is a must as this dish is visually bland but not bland in the mouth! Read More
