Sauteed Bay Scallops

Sauteed Bay Scallops: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 4
If you are looking for fast and easy, this scallop recipe is for you! Bay scallops are small and very sweet. They are in season from November to March. I serve the scallops with long-grain white or brown rice and wedges of lemon.


  • 1 1/2 lbs bay scallops
  • ground paprika
  • 1 Tbs light olive oil
  • 1 tsp butter (see note)
  • 1 Tbs peeled and minced shallot
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 Tbs lemon juice


  • Rinse the scallops with cold water and pat dry. Sprinkle lightly with the paprika.
  • Heat the oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for about 1 minute. Add the scallops to the skillet, a few at a time to avoid crowding, and cook for 1 minute per side, or until golden brown on the outside but still translucent in the middle. Transfer the scallops to a heated platter and cover to keep warm.
  • Add the shallot and garlic to the skillet and cook for 1 minute. Add the wine and lemon juice and cook for another 2 minutes. Return the scallops to the skillet and toss with the sauce. Serve immediately.

Variation: You can omit the butter and saute the scallops in oil alone, but the butter gives them a nice golden brown color.
