Moroccan Phyllo Rolls With Shrimp And Scallops

  • SERVINGS: Makes 30 Rolls
  1. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1/4 pound sea or bay scallops
  3. 1/4 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  4. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  5. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  6. 1/4 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
  7. 1 large tomato—peeled, seeded and chopped
  8. 3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  9. 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  10. 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  11. 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  12. Large pinch of cayenne
  13. Large pinch of saffron threads
  14. 1/4 cup fresh bread crumbs
  15. 1/2 pound phyllo dough
  16. 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  17. Lemon wedges
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the scallops, shrimp and half of the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the seafood from the pan, chop coarsely and reserve in a bowl.
  2. In the same pan, add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, the onion and tomato and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the parsley, cilantro, cumin, paprika, cayenne, saffron, and the remaining garlic and season with salt and pepper. Continue to simmer until the moisture has evaporated, 10 minutes. Add the seafood and bread crumbs and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°. Cut the phyllo crosswise into 4 equal strips, 4 inches wide. Cover with a slightly dampened towel until ready to use. Lightly brush 1 strip of phyllo with melted butter and place another one on top. Brush lightly with butter. Place a heaping teaspoon of filling along a short end. Fold in the sides and roll, forming a cigar shape. Brush lightly with butter. Repeat with remaining phyllo, butter and filling. Arrange the rolls on a greased baking sheet and bake until golden, 15 minutes. Serve immediately, garnished with lemon wedges.
Notes These can also be made into triangles. Cut the phyllo into 3-inch-wide strips. Brush 1 strip lightly with melted butter and place another one on top. Brush lightly with butter. Place a heaping teaspoon of filling at one end and fold the corner in to make a triangle. Fold along the line as you would fold a flag. Brush the triangles lightly with butter and bake.
