Makes: 4 servings Prep 10 mins Cook 33 mins View Nutrition Facts


  • 2 tablespoons  olive oil
  • 1 pound  bay scallops
  • 1/4 teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup  minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon  sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups  Arborio rice
  • 2 1/2 cups  low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup  dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup  grated Parmesan
  • 2 cups  baby arugula
  • Zest of 1/2 orange


1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the scallops with 1/8 teaspoon each of the salt and black pepper. Place scallops in the pot and sear 1 1/2 minutes on each side; set aside on a plate and cover loosely with aluminum foil to keep warm.

2. Heat remaining oil in pot and reduce heat to medium low. Add the onion, sugar and remaining salt and pepper and saute 10 minutes, scraping up any brown bits left by the scallops and stirring occasionally.

3. Add the rice and stir to coat with onion and oil. Stir in the broth and wine; return heat to medium high, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer 20 minutes, until rice is cooked through. Stir in the Parmesan and scallops, along with any liquid on the plate. Toss in the arugula and serve topped with the orange zest.

Just made this for my hubby and myself, and we really enjoyed it! Don't skip the orange zest as it adds so much to the dish. And you definitely need more broth (I used veggie broth) than the recipe calls for.
