Chick Peas with Rocket and Sherry

This is not quite a stir-fry, though I do cook it in my wok. The chick peas get soused with the sherry and infused with cumin, and the rocket, or rather tangle of green things that come in the packet called 'roquette salad' at my supermarket, wilt leggily in the pan. This turns the chorizo and scallops into a feistily elegant main course, and is a useful way of providing a quick, filling, bowl of not--the-usual vegetables whenever you want a boost.
