In this recipe, nutrient-rich brussels sprouts are paired with tender seared scallops to create a satisfying dish. If omitting the bacon, replace the bacon fat with 1 tsp. each butter and olive oil for sautéing the brussels sprouts.

  • 148


  • 12 brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
  • 4 bacon slices (optional)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 12 sea scallops
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs. dry white wine
  • Lemon wedges for serving (optional)
  • Extra-virgin olive oil for serving (optional)

Wine Pairing

This pairs well with crisp, medium-bodied white wines like the Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc, Napa County/Sonoma County from our Wine Club.


Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the brussels sprouts and cook until barely tender. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking.

Meanwhile, in a fry pan over medium heat, cook the bacon, turning occasionally, until crisp. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Pour off all but 2 tsp. of the rendered fat from the pan.

Return the fry pan to medium-high heat. Add the brussels sprouts and sauté until the edges are golden, about 5 minutes. Season with 1 tsp. each of the salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.

Pat the scallops dry with paper towels. On a plate, stir together the cornstarch and the remaining 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper. Roll the scallops in the cornstarch mixture to coat lightly.

In a fry pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter with the olive oil. Add the scallops and sear for 3 minutes. Turn the scallops over and sear for 1 minute. Add the 2 Tbs. lemon juice, wine and 2 Tbs. water and stir to scrape up the browned bits. Cover, reduce the heat to low and cook until scallops are just opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes.

Divide the brussels sprouts among 4 bowls. Top each serving with 3 scallops and drizzle with the pan juices. Crumble the bacon and sprinkle over the sprouts, or drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil. Serve hot. Serves 4.
