Cooking Dinner tonite

I decided since I have a easy day at work today I will cook dinner. And that is going to be bay scallops with spinach and bacon. Sometimes I serve it with pasta, but tonite I decided it will be rice.

The first step is to thaw the scallops, when thawed rinse them and pat them dry. Next in a bowl combine a little amount of flour about 1/2 cup with steak seasoning. Mix that well than place the mixture into a plastic resealable bag. Put your scallops in, and toss until coated well. Then leave the bag in the refrigerator for 15 minutes so they marinate. While you are waiting cook your bacon on high heat. You want to remove the bacon and let it cool. Next prepare your rice. After which get a pan with 3 tbsp of oil in it and get it hot. When the oil is ready add four cloves of garlic, 1/4 cup of red and white onions, and saute them for two minutes.
Then take your scallops and sear them until they are opaque. You have to turn them at least once. When the scallops are done, remove them and the onions from the pan. Next place you fresh spinach to the skillet and sear that, than sprinkle with some water. You then want to cover and cook over a medium heat, until the spinach starts to wilt. After you return the scallops to the skillet and cook for two minutes. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle your cooked crumbles bacon on top. Serve with your rice. You can also serve with everything on top of the rice also.

Do you have a scallop recipe to share?
