Scallops are so super yummy. How many of you are scared to make these at home? This recipe for Linguine with Seared Scallops will take that fear away. I promise you will never want to order scallops in a restaurant ever again!

Start by picking up U-10 dry-packed scallops. Why dry-packed? Various reasons. They are not packed full of chemicals like wet-packed, and they do not lose volume during the cooking process!

Pan Seared Scallops with Linguine

Prepare the linguine by boiling in salted water to al dente. Rinse the scallops and tear off the foot attached to the side.

Fresh Dry-Packed Scallops

Place on paper towel and pat dry. Sprinkle with kosher salt and black pepper.

Heat a cast iron, or non-stick skillet to medium-high. Add the butter and allow to melt and bubble. Place scallops in pan. Do not overcrowd the pan. If you do the scallops will “cook” instead of sear. Allow to sear to a golden brown on both sides. Once you place scallops in pan, do NOT touch. Allow them to sear for at least two minutes. Using a cast iron pan is key to get the perfect sear!

Once the scallops have seared nicely, remove from pan and reserve on a plate. Add the olive oil and garlic to the same pan. Infuse for just a minute or so.

Transfer the cooked pasta to the pan directly from the pot with tongs so that a bit of the pasta water can help form a sauce in the pan. Add the fresh parsley, lemon juice, lemon zest and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Plate pasta. Top with seared scallops and a touch more of cheese!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
