Scallops on Asparagus Spears with Wine Reduction

"It's extremely important in any recipe using scallops to dry them well with paper towels before cooking them in a skillet or broiling. They retain water and pressing down lightly removes some of the water, allowing them to brown instead of stew."

  1. Cook asparagus in boiling water in a large skillet 3 minutes or until just crisp tender. Drain on paper towels and set aside on a serving platter. Cover to keep warm.
  2. Combine flour, Old Bay, and paprika in a shallow pan. Stir to blend thoroughly. Add scallops and coat evenly with flour mixture.
  3. Dry skillet with a paper towel, if necessary, and place over medium-high heat until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of butter. When butter is melted, add scallops and cook 4 minutes, turn and cook 4 minutes longer or until opaque in center. Top asparagus with scallops and cover to keep warm.
  4. Add wine and dill weed to pan residue. Bring to a boil and cook 1-2 minutes or until liquid measures about 1/3 cup. Remove from heat; stir in remaining 1 tablespoon butter and stir until completely melted. Pour sauce evenly over scallops. Garnish with lemon wedges, if desired.
