Scallops In "Creamy" Wine Sauce

Submitted by: KAUAI-CAROLANN

Introduction

A good one that tastes "fancy" but isn't. Easy one for first time scallop users - just remember, sear them, set them aside and no more than 5 more minutes! A good one that tastes "fancy" but isn't.

Ingredients

    8 large scallops, washed
    1/2 tsp olive oil (EVOO)
    1 cup mushrooms, sliced
    1/4 cup red onion, diced
    1/2 tsp garlic, crushed & fine chop
    Spray Pam
    4 tbs Marsala cooking wine

    Fresh basil, chopped

Tips

This can easily be a Low Carb meal by subbing the pasta for tofu noodles/miracle noodles, serving over mashed cauliflower or peeling a zucchini into strips to make "noodles".

Directions

Recipe makes two servings or 4 scallops each.

Scallops should to be seared first to seal in the juices and keep them tender. No rubber scallops!

Place EVOO in non stick pan on high heat to get it very hot. Sear scallops about 1 minute each side. Remove from pan and cover to keep warm. (use Pam to save on a few calories, but be careful not to smoke yourself out!)

Turn heat to medium and add mushrooms, onion and garlic (plus a little spray Pam if you like). Sautee for 3-4 minutes.

Add marsala wine and let simmer for another 2-3 minutes. Stirring occasionally.

Add Silk creamer and let simmer for another 2-3 minutes. Stirring occasionally.

Reduce heat to low and add scallops back in for a maximum of 5 minutes so as not to over cook them.

If you like the sauce a little thicker, add just a tiny touch of Wonder flour...maybe a 1/4 tsp before adding the scallops.

Garnish with chopped fresh basil.

Serve over pasta with a lovely salad and you have a fabulous meal (not included in nutritional info).

    Very good. I didn't know what silk creamer was. I used half and half - 5/4/09

    Silk creamer is a soy version of half & half.

    I used 2 T cream instead of the silk creamer. I'm not a real scallops fan, so I made this with my husband in mind. It was SO good! The sauce is absolutely wonderful!! Now I can't wait to try it with beef or chicken. - 4/15/11

    This goes together so fast that it's best to get the pasta cooking first before cooking the scallops and sauce. And wow, was this a hit! No leftovers tonight! Definitely a keeper. - 7/15/13

    The local grocery didn't have plain creamer so I used heavy cream for a thick sauce... everything came out perfect! Next time I will add more than 1c mushrooms. - 11/4/11

    Very Good! I think I'll take your advice and add a little bit of a thickening agent in the future. I might also try a spicier version as well. :-) - 2/16/11

    We absolutely loved this entre! Our grocery store didn't have the silk creamer, so we used cream instead. I want to try it next time with the silk creamer that I hopefully can find in a nearby town. - 6/6/10

  • Liked it but could be a little spicer...not sure what to add, but will think about it. The searing advice was important. I served it with a spinach/lemon cous cous, they paired well! - 8/7/13
