Used different ingredients.I found the sauce to be a little too runny so added some mushrooms but left out one tin of tomato's. This was really filling but a nice recipe nevertheless.-02 Nov 2010

15 Best Recipes That Start with Frozen Bay Scallops

We love our packages of frozen shrimp. But for quick weeknight meals, there's more than one shellfish in the sea! It's always nice to have variety, and frozen bay scallops are a great secret weapon. Small, sweet, and tender bay scallops are less expensive than silver dollar-size sea scallops, and they thaw and cook super quickly -- keep a package in the freezer and they're always on hand for versatile, family-friendly dinners. We've gathered together some of our very favorite bay scallop recipes, featuring pasta dishes, chowders, risottos, and more!


Miso scallop and snow pea en papillote recipe

Wrapping the scallops and vegetables in a “purse” of parchment paper means they steam together in the fragrant Asian-inspired sauce. To keep the butcher’s twine from burning in the oven, soak it in water for about 15 minutes before tying the bundles. Serve with brown rice or quinoa.


Recipe Summary

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3/4 pound spaghetti or linguine
  • 3 shallots, minced (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for grill
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups mixed fresh herbs, such as mint, flat-leaf parsley, tarragon, and basil, finely chopped
  • 1 fennel bulb, trimmed, halved lengthwise, and thinly sliced crosswise, plus 1/4 cup snipped fronds
  • 24 sea scallops (about 1 1/4 pounds total), tough muscles removed

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add pasta and cook according to package instructions until al dente. Meanwhile, place shallots on a cutting board and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt. Using the side of a knife, crush into a paste. Transfer to a medium bowl and whisk in 6 tablespoons oil and lemon juice. Add herbs and fennel fronds mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Drain pasta in a colander and return to pot. Stir in herb sauce cover to keep warm.

Heat grill to medium-high. Toss fennel slices with 1 1/2 teaspoons oil season with salt and pepper. Toss scallops with remaining 2 tablespoons oil season with salt and pepper and thread onto skewers (presoaked for 30 minutes, if wooden), if using.

Lightly brush grates with oil. Place fennel slices in a grill basket and grill until just wilted and starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Grill scallops, turning halfway through, until golden and just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes total. Serve scallops and fennel over pasta.


Getting the perfect sear for scallop pasta!

This scallop pasta is an easy recipe: the only part with a little technique is how to sear the scallops! Once you get the pasta going, you’ll need to get a crisp brown sear on each side of the scallops. If it’s not perfect, that’s ok! It’s a little tricky to get them all perfectly brown, so you might have to practice a few times. Here are our top tips on how to sear scallops:

  • Brine the scallops for 10 minutes, then pat them dry. Place them in a bath of room temperature salt water, which freshens the flavor and helps season the scallop from the inside out. Don’t skip this step! Patting them dry is also important: any water on the scallops will cause them to steam instead of sear.
  • Keep the scallops as far apart as possible in the pan. You may find you need to do 2 batches. If the scallops are touch, you also risk steaming instead of browning.
  • Cook for 2 to 3 minutes: don’t stir! Not moving the scallop allows the brown crust to form. This is called the Maillard reaction, a chemical reaction that creates that beautifully browned flavor on seared proteins.
  • Flip and cook another 2 to 3 minutes. Same deal: don’t stir! This forms the crust on the other side.

Recipe Summary

  • Coarse salt
  • 1 pound linguine or spaghetti
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
  • 1 pound bay or sea scallops, tough muscles removed
  • 1 pint container ripe grape tomatoes
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, plus more for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Bring a large stockpot of water to a boil, and add salt generously. Add pasta cook until al dente according to package instructions. Drain in a colander, reserving 1/4 cup cooking water.

Heat the oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and red-pepper flakes toast until lightly golden and fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer garlic to a small bowl set aside

Add scallops to pan (if using sea scallops, cut in half) saute until opaque, about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, and cook, stirring frequently, until the skins begin to split, 2 to 3 minutes crush a few with the back of the spoon. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.

Add pasta, parsley, reserved cooking water, and butter toss to combine. Divide among bowls, and serve immediately garnish with reserved garlic and parsley.


I don’t know about you, but I cannot get enough of a big plate of spaghetti, especially when it has tons of flavor. This tasty Pasta With Clams And Scallops is ready from start to finish in 30 minutes or less and it’s simple enough for an easy weeknight meal and elegant enough or entertaining.

If you’re celebrating Lent, this dish is perfect for you since it doesn’t have any meat and it makes a big platter for the whole family. The idea is to invite your relatives and get them all in the kitchen. Have one chop the onions, the other cook the pasta, etc. My family loves to get in the kitchen so I welcome their help.

Don’t be intimidated by the thought of cooking scallops and clams. They are fairly easy to make and I will show you photos for each step. When you make this yummy Pasta With Clams And Scallops you’ll be an expert.

The secret is the sauce. I used Clamato tomato cocktail. Have you tried it before? It’s delicious by itself but AMAZING inside this sauce. When you cook it and reduce it a bit, it gives a deep complex taste that compliments the seafood and pasta perfectly. You can also add some shrimp if you’d like.

Ready to start cooking? Then put on an apron, wash your hands and let’s get the kitchen dirty (sorry, it’s part of the experience).

We first start by putting 2 pots on the stove. One to cook the pasta and the other one for the sauce. Place water, salt and some oil to a boil. Throw in your spaghetti and let it cook while you make the sauce.

Meanwhile, chop some onions, garlic, and parsley. Heat some olive oil on medium heat and throw in your onions. Cook it for 2-3 minutes and then add the garlic. Cook the garlic for 1-2 minutes more.

Now comes the good part: pour in some white wine.

Let this sauce comes to a simmer. You won’t believe the aroma coming from this pot. Add some hot sauce if you’d like.

Now throw in your cleaned clams and cover the pot with a lid. Reduce the heat to medium- low to let the clams steam. About 5-6 minutes.

In the meantime, season the scallops with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the scallops until brown on both sides.

After the 5 minutes have passed, remove the lid from the pot and check if the clams have opened. Any closed clams must be discarded since they are not fresh. I was lucky and all of them opened up beautifully!

Now we add the drained pasta to the sauce.

We stir and add the chopped parsley and the sauteed scallops.

And that’s it, folks! your delicious Pasta With Clams And Scallops is done and ready for eating. See? I told you it was easy and fast.

The sauce is finished with cherry tomatoes, white wine, chicken stock, and a healthy splash of heavy cream. It’s a rich sauce, but lemon juice and parsley add just the right amount of brightness to the sauce. You can serve this pasta any time of year – hot or cold weather!

How to make this Creamy Rigatoni with Seared Scallops:

This rigatoni with scallops is not terribly difficult to make but you will use three pots and pans, so it’s a little more labor-intensive than some recipes, but I promise, the finished product will be worth it.
