    • 1½ pounds of sea scallops
    • 5 slices bacon, diced
    • salt and black pepper to taste
    • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
    • ½ pound potatoes, cut into a 1/2-inch dice
    • ½ cup dry white wine
    • 1 cup chicken broth
    • ½ cup heavy cream
    • 1 cup corn kernels
    • ¼ cup flat-leaf parsley, chopped


    • Bring bacon to a bare simmer in a large pot over medium heat. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and reserve.

    • Cook scallops on both sides in bacon fat until lightly golden, about 1 minute per side. Remove from the bowl.

    • Add onion to bacon fat in the pot and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.

    • Add potatoes and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, about 6 minutes.

    • Stir in wine, broth and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil.

    • Cover and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes.

    • Add scallops and cook, stirring constantly, until just cooked through, about 1 minute.

    • Add cream and corn, and simmer until cream is thickened about 3 minutes. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

    • Remove the pot from heat and add bacon, potatoes and parsley.

    • Stir and let stand, covered, for 1 minute.

    • Serving Suggestions: To serve: spoon portions into four bowls. Spoon a dollop of the reserved bacon fat on top of chowder.
