Slideshow: Sustainable Seafood
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound large sea scallops (about 12)
Salt and freshly ground pepper
4 ounces thick-sliced bacon, diced
1 large shallot, minced
1 cup dry white wine
1 cup chicken stock or low-sodium broth
24 littleneck clams, scrubbed
1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
2 tablespoons chopped mint
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoons snipped chives
Crusty bread, for serving
How to Make It
In a large skillet, heat the oil. Season the scallops with salt and pepper and cook over high heat, turning once, until browned, about 3 minutes total; transfer to a plate.
Add the bacon to the skillet and cook over high heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Add the shallot and cook, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the wine and cook until reduced by half, scraping up any bits stuck to the pan, about 3 minutes. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Add the clams, cover and cook until most of them have opened, 5 to 8 minutes.
Stir in the peas, mint, parsley and chives. Add the scallops and any accumulated juices and cook until the scallops are heated through, about 2 minutes; discard any clams that don't open. Spoon the seafood and broth into bowls and serve with bread.
