Scallops Scampi

This is a really easy and quick recipe.  Reasonably healthy.


  • 2 tablespoons butter or extra Virgin olive oil

  • 1-1/2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/2 large onion, minced

  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (forgot the wine, use a little more chicken broth)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Romano cheese

  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

  • 1/2 - 3/4 pound bay scallops

  • 1/2 pound linguine pasta

In a large skillet, melt butter (or olive oil) over medium heat and sauté garlic and onion until translucent. Add wine, salt, ground black pepper and half the cheese.

Add scallops and the chicken broth; increase the heat, and boil rapidly for 7 to 8 minutes.  Do not overcook.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to10 minutes or until al dente; drain.

Reduce heat for scallop mixture and add parsley; place sauce on top of linguine. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; serve.

Serves 2-3.
