The refrigerator light goes on...

This herbed butter will work for most any seafood. Broiling halibut or trout is wonderful but you can also use shrimp in place of scallops.


Bay Scallops with White Wine and Herbed Butter

Servings: 2 | Serving size: 4 ounces scallops and 2 Tbsp. butter

Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

The herbed butter serves 8. Leftovers keep well for about 3 to 4 days tightly covered in the refrigerator or it can be frozen.

Serve with 1 - 2 ounce whole wheat or gluten-free roll.


Serve with Roasted Beets or Pan Grilled Broccoli or Pan Grilled Asparagus or Healthy Caesar Salad

3 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 1/2 tsp garlic
3 Tbsp shallot
5 Tbsp curly parsley
1 Tbsp fresh dill
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp dry sherry
8 ounces fresh bay scallops
4 Tbsp white wine

Blend the butter, garlic, shallot, parsley, dill, lemon juice and sherry together in a mixing bowl.

Preheat the oven to 325°F.

Place 4 ounce portions of scallops in au gratin or similar dish.

Add 2 Tablespoons of herbed butter to each dish.

Add 2 Tablespoons of wine to each dish.

Place in the pre-heated oven and cook until the scallops are done - about 12 - 15 minutes (this will be when they turn milky white but are still slightly tender to the touch).
