Directions:

Preheat the broiler with the oven rack 6” away from the element. Place the Flying Olive EVOO(s) of Choice in the roasting pan. Add the white wine, lemon juice, Flying Olive Neapolitan Herb Balsamic, garlic, red pepper, salt, and black pepper.

Pat the shrimp and scallops dry and add to the pan. Add the tomatoes. Toss everything together to coat them.

Place the pan in the oven and broil 3 minutes. Stir the shrimp and turn the scallops over. Broil 2 more minutes or until seafood is done.

When the shrimp and scallops are done, remove the pan from the broiler. Add the spinach and toss everything together for about 1 minute until the spinach is slightly wilted.

Serve with bread or over rice or pasta.
