Here's how to make this easy recipe:
4 slices of bacon, cut into small slices
12 sea scallops, patted dry
1 small onion, finely chopped
4 small Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1/2” cubes
1/2 cup white wine
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup of 2% milk or coconut milk
1 cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped fine
salt & pepper
juice of 1/2 lemon or lime
Heat a large pan over medium heat and cook the bacon until crispy. Set aside and keep the pan with the bacon drippings.
In the same pan and with scallops seasoned with salt and pepper, sear the scallops until golden brown on both sides, then set aside on a plate.
Add the onion to the same pan and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes.
Then add the potatoes, wine, broth and milk, and mix well. Reduce to a simmer and partially cover, simmering until the potatoes are tender (about 10 minutes).
Finally, add the scallops and corn, and simmer just to heat everything through, combining well.
Taste and adjust with more salt and pepper if necessary, add the juice of the lime, and when heated through, serve with a sprinkle of parsley.
WINE FACTS... If you only drank half of your wine bottle, the best way for the balance to keep is to transfer it to a smaller glass bottle (because of less oxygen contact!) and keep in the refrigerator.
