    1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil
    1 to 2 sweet peppers, chopped
    6 large garlic cloves, minced
    2 oz (60 g) thickly sliced prosciutto, finely chopped, about 1/2 cup (125 mL)
    1 cup (250 mL) chicken broth or bouillon
    3 tbsp (45 mL) dry sherry
    3/4 tsp (4 mL) paprika
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) hot red chili flakes
    1-1/2 lbs (750 g) small bay or sea scallops
    3 tbsp (45 mL) cornstarch
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt (optional)



1. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan set over medium heat. Add peppers, garlic and prosciutto and stir often for 3 minutes.

2. Stir in broth, sherry, paprika and chili flakes. Boil, uncovered, over medium-high heat to reduce broth, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, if scallops are frozen, do not thaw; simply run under cold water to remove ice crystals, then pat dry with paper towels. If using large sea scallops, cut into 4 pieces.

4. Dissolve cornstarch in 1 tablespoon (15 mL) cold water. Add scallops to boiling broth. Then whisk in cornstarch mixture.

5. Stir gently over medium-high heat until sauce thickens a little and scallops are firm and opaque, about 3 minutes for fresh and 4 minutes for frozen scallops. Taste and stir in salt, if needed.

6. Serve over rice in individual soup bowls. Sprinkle with parsley.
