This is an all-time favorite of mine. Carbonara with Pan-Seared Scallops!


  • Scallops
  • Salt and Pepper

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 tbsp butter

  • 12-16 large scallops 3-4 per person

  • Carbonara
  • 8 slices thick cut bacon, diced, and cut away excess fat

  • 1 shallot, finely sliced

  • 1 clove garlic leave whole

  • 4 green onions

  • 2 egg yolks

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • 1 cup parmigiano reggiano, grated

  • fresh ground pepper

  • 14 oz (400g) pasta (under your favorite pasta)


  • Pasta Carbonara
  • Cooking pasta in large stainless steel pot.
  • In small bowl, mix together cream, egg yolks and 3/4 of cheese.
  • In large skillet, cook bacon until crisp, add shallots and 1/2 green onions.
  • Smash down garlic clove a bit, add to bacon.
  • When pasta is finished, drain well, then add to skillet of bacon.
  • Toss well, and then transfer to large bowl.
  • Add cream mixture to pasta and combined well. Make sure pasta is still hot in order to cook the eggs and melt the cheese.
  • Arrange pasta on plate, top with seared scallops, add some fresh ground pepper, grated parmesan, and green onions.
  • Perfect Pan Seared Scallops
  • Blot scallops with paper towel to remove any water. Salt and pepper.
  • Heat large non-stick frying pan, add 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  • Add scallops leaving plenty of space between. Overcrowding the pan will drop the pan temperature and cause scallops to steam rather than sear. (should work in batches)
  • Sear for about 2-4 minutes or when bottom is a nice golden brown. Don’t move them around in the pan or you will prevent them from forming that nice brown crust. After a couple of minutes have peek under to see if golden brown.
  • Turn to sear other side. (about 1-3 more minutes)
  • Add 2 tablespoons of butter to pan now.
  • Spoon the melted butter over the scallops as the other side finishes cooking.
  • Transfer to paper towel covered plate.
  • Keep warm in oven, if making in batches.
