Scallop and Artichoke Heart Casserole
Scallops are a good source of protein, vitamin B12, magnesium, and potassium — and best of all, they lend their delicious taste to this casserole!

Ingredients
1 package (9 ounces) frozen artichoke hearts, cooked and drained
1 pound scallops
1 teaspoon canola or vegetable oil
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups low-fat (1%) milk
1 teaspoon dried tarragon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Dash paprika

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1/4 of total recipe

1 – Preheat oven to 350°F.

2 – Cut large artichoke hearts lengthwise into halves. Arrange artichoke hearts in even layer in 8-inch square baking dish.

3 – Rinse scallops; pat dry with paper towel. If scallops are large, cut into halves. Arrange scallops evenly over artichokes.

4 – Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add bell pepper and green onions; cook and stir 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour. Gradually stir in milk until smooth. Add tarragon, salt, and white pepper; cook and stir over medium heat 10 minutes or until sauce boils and thickens. Pour sauce over scallops.

5 – Bake, uncovered, 25 minutes or until bubbling and scallops are opaque. Sprinkle with parsley and paprika before serving.

Tip: White pepper is a mild version of the common black pepper. They both originate from the same berries, which are called peppercorns. White pepper helps to maintain consistent color in light foods.

Canola Oil………..

Canola oil contains both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which make it the healthiest cooking oil out there. Canola oil has 7 percent saturated fat, which helps cut cholesterol levels. It is rich in vitamins E and K, and reduces skin problems and ageing signs like acne, fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and spots.

Cooking Oils……………

Each cooking oil has a unique flavor profile and different smoke points. That means some oils (like canola or peanut oil) are better suited for high-temperature frying, while fats like butter or lard are best for stir-frying and to sauté. Learn what the best oils are for frying. Super fragrant oils, like extra-virgin olive oil and sesame oil, are best used raw as finishing oils or for salad dressings.
