24 scallops


  • ¼ cup white wine

  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon shallots

  • ½ cup heavy cream

  • ¾ cup butter

  • 24 sea scallops

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Combine white wine, vinegar, and shallots in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until about 1 tablespoon liquid remains in the pan. Stir in heavy cream; continue boiling until reduced by half. Stir in butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, until melted. Keep sauce warm.

  2. Preheat the oven on broiler setting.

  3. Brush scallops with olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place under the preheated broiler until scallops are opaque, with a bit of brown around the edges, about 2 minutes per side.

  4. Place a spoonful of sauce on each plate and top with 4 scallops.
