Sautéed Scallops with Bacon and Shallots

A classic, via Bittman and modified slightly.


  • 1 lb. sea scallops, quartered
  • 1/2 tbs. butter
  • 1/2 tbs. olive oil
  • 1/2 c. bacon or pancetta, diced
  • 1/4 c. shallots, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat oil and butter in nonstick skillet over medium heat
  2. Sautée bacon 5-10 min.
  3. Add shallots and cook 5 min. 
  4. Add scallops and cook several minutes until stark white
  5. Serve over capellini or thin rice noodles and enjoy!


You kidding me? Fantastic.
