Scallops in Wine Sauce Recipe

I picked up some bay scallops on markdown at Kroger recently. Since I had some leftover white wine, I thought it was perfect to make a sauce for the scallops! This recipe was very tasty and quick to make.

Recipe: Scallops in White Wine Sauce

Summary: Bay Scallops in a White Wine and Butter Sauce


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 (10.75 oz.) can chicken broth
  • 1 pound bay scallops
  • 1 pound pasta
  • 1 teaspoon parsley


  1. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat and saute garlic and onion until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add wine, salt, ground black pepper and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
  3. Add chicken broth and scallops; bring to a boil and cook for 4 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions.
  5. Remove from heat; place sauce on top of linguine. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and parsley.


  • Use shrimp if you don’t have scallops.
  • If the sauce is too thin, use corn starch to thicken.
  • Don’t overcook scallops- they will be too chewy.
