A super-simple pasta dish with bay scallops in a sherry cream sauce.

This video shows you how to make seared bay scallops in a simple sherry cream sauce. It’s very fast and easy—it’s ready in about the time it takes your pasta to be ready! You’ll sear the bay scallops on high, and then add butter, minced garlic, lemon zest, red pepper flakes. Give the pan a quick deglaze of dry sherry (or white wine) and then finish things off with a healthy splash of cold heavy cream and chopped parsley. And top it off with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. It’s incredibly easy and just as delicious. See more Chef John videos >>

I need the written recipe. Not too big on watching the videos. Would rather have the written words which the other Chef John's have had. Thanks.

Simply Amazing!! Made this for a special Valentine's dinner and it was DELICIOUS!! Thankfully the video made it SO simple!! Otherwise i would have been too intimidated to try it! I cheated and used an Epicure spice (Paris Bistro) which had a mixture of similiar spice ingredients, but i used the same process and other ingredients. Thank you Chef John for making scallops so easy AND tasty!!
