[step-item number=”1″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Rinse fish and pat dry. In a large saucepan, bring 4 cups water to a boil; add scallops and cook for 1 to 3 minutes or just until the scallops turn opaque. Drain scallops; cut into quarters. Cook the spinach and onion according to the directions on the spinach package; drain well, pressing out excess liquid with paper towels. In a medium-size bowl, using a heavy spoon, slightly crush the stuffing mix. Stir in the spinach-onion mixture, stuffing mix, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, and egg. Mix well. Carefully stir in scallops. [/step-item]

[step-item number=”2″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Preheat the oven to 375°F. Measure length of fillets. Cut long fillets or overlap thinner ends of 2 short fillets to make pieces 7 to 8 inches in length. Spread about 1/2 cup of the scallop mixture evenly on top of each fish piece. Roll fish pieces up, starting from narrow ends. Secure each roll with toothpicks. Place rolls, seam side down, in a lightly greased 13″ x 9″ x 2″ baking dish. [/step-item]
