  2. Add wine and stir. Let simmer until most of the wine is gone.
  3. Pour in the cream and let boil together for a while.
  4. Stir in parmesan cheese. Salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
  5. Brown the scallops for no more than 30 seconds on each side, in a hot pan until nicely browned.
  6. Bake in the oven, using the broil function for a few minutes at 450°F (225°C), or until the sauce has turned golden brown.

Tip!

Make sure the scallops are dry before broiling, let sit on a paper towel to dry off. Pair these with different types of dry wine, to accentuate the delicate flavors.

    This looks really good and plan to make it for dinner tonight.

    Although it's not clear in the recipe, so using the photo as a guide, I plan to use a cookie sheet as a base, put a browned scallop on a flattened parchment cupcake liner, pour some of the cream mixture over the scallop then broil.

    If there is a better process please let me know. Tia!

    Those are actual scallop shells they are broiled in. The cupcake liners might burn under the broiler.

    Does anyone know the carb count for scallops? When looking up on google I get anything between 0gr carbs/100gr to 6g carbs/100gr...
    So it's either nothing (like a lot of meat and fishes) or it's way too much for a keto diet... Anyone?

    Alex, I use a trustworthy nutrition app called Cronometer. It says a cooked sea scallop that is large weighs 15 g and has .8 carbs.
