This fabulous, easy scallop sauce recipe is made with wine and butter. It's great for seafood and vegetables, but I especially like it with scallops.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • Preheat the oven on broiler setting.

  • 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.

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