Ingredients

  • 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

Method

  • 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.
