I wanted to show off the ocean freshness of the scallops I bought on the dock from a local fisherman, so I used basic ingredients to showcase them. With sage and shallots, this is the best cream sauce for scallops I've found. —Joan Churchill, Dover, New Hampshire

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds sea scallops
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 6 fresh sage leaves, thinly sliced
  • Hot cooked pasta, optional

Directions

  1. Sprinkle scallops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, cook scallops in 2 tablespoons oil until firm and opaque, 1-1/2 to 2 minutes on each side. Remove and keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet, saute shallots in remaining oil until tender. Add cream; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 30 seconds or until slightly thickened.
