Baked Scallops with White Wine and Pancetta

Baked Scallops with Pancetta and White Wine (1 of 1)

SCALLOP-MANIA | Large sea scallops are kept in their shell and dosed with a mixture of garlic, pancetta and white wine before being baked to perfection.

Hankering for a quick and easy dinner but also concerned about sustainability? Scallops make a smart seafood choice. Not only are they convenient and cook in less than 5 minutes, they pair beautifully with other dinner staples such as pasta, quinoa, or couscous.

Besides pan-frying scallops, another quick and succulent way to cook scallops are to drizzle them with a mixture of white wine, olive oil, diced garlic, and strips of pancetta, and then let them bake in the oven. This has got to be the easiest “hands-free” way to cook scallops. Delicious.
