I love scallops, particularly bay scallops. This is a quick and easy way I've found to prepare them. It has become a regular at my house. If you prefer a thicker sauce, make a slurry out of a teaspoon water mixed with a teaspoon of cornstarch and stir into the boiling liquid to tighten it up. Serve with crusty bread for an easy weeknight meal.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the linguine, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the anchovies with the oil in the skillet until the anchovies melt into the oil, about 2 minutes; add the onion and cook until translucent, 3 to five minutes. Stir in the chicken stock, wine, garlic, parsley, and seafood seasoning; lie the scallops into the liquid; season with salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook until the scallops are opaque, about 7 minutes. Serve over the cooked linguine.

Your idea for adding the clams is a great one! I wrote the recipe as a sort of starting point but you can add whatever seafood you like. We've added some clams (and their juice for added flavor) and mussels. Read More

We really liked this and found it to be a very nice quick meal. Kids age 10 7 and 4 all loved it. We all agreed that we would like it to have more sauce next time so I will double that part. My pasta drank up all of the sauce but it was so delicious I don't blame that pasta! I made it as written and didn't add the salt and pepper. I know many people will leave out the anchovies but that is really the key to the flavor of this dish. I don't tell my kids about it until they are loving it! Read More

I give the recipe 5 stars because the submitter said this was a starting point and I believe she is right. The scallops I had to work with weren't the highest quality but that isn't her fault. The dish lacked that punch of flavor I thought it would have. I felt if I hadn't followed the recipe to a T but had thrown in some more wine garlic. That some more something my taste buds were waiting for it would have been really good. It is a great starting point though. Read More

I thought it was really good. I added a little extra onion and garlic and sauted them together w/ the anchovies. I also added a little extra wine and thickened the sauce with cornstarch. My husband suggested adding a diced fresh tomato next time around. Excellent base seafood recipe. Will make again. Read More
