  • 8 oz pasta eg bucatini, linguini (225g)
  • 1 clove garlic large
  • 1/2 tbsp butter (10g)
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 lb scallops
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley


  • Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions - typically around 7-10min in a large pot of boiling water.
  • As you are boiling the water for the pasta, finely chop the garlic and parsley. Remove any muscle on the side on the scallops and split any large/thick ones in half.
  • Once you start cooking the pasta, heat the butter and oil in a medium-large skillet/frying pan over a medium heat and add the scallops. Leave them to cook for a couple minutes until you see them starting to cook around the side. Turn and cook on the other side - they should have a light sear. Add the garlic and cook a minute to soften.
  • Add the wine and deglaze the pan - scrape away any browning from the bottom. Cook for a minute as you do this.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the cooked, drained pasta once it has cooked, along with the parsley, and carefully toss together before serving.
