Tampa Bay Scallops Linguine

Looking for an elegant dinner that is at place on a weeknight or special occasion? This Tampa Bay scallops linguine recipe is a rock solid 10/10. Bay scallops are smaller and sweeter than sea scallops and it is a favorite Florida seasonal activity to go scalloping of the brackish waterways! Something amazing happens when you deglaze the pan with the white wine and use the caramelized scallop bits to make the cream sauce! Our SPF 7 adds the perfect amount of salt, pepper, garlic, and sweet vinegar to take the naturally sweet bay scallops to the next level of flavor! Use your favorite white wine or substitute chicken broth if you don’t like to cook with alcohol. This creamy and indulgent scallop pasta dish is uncomplicated, easy to prepare, overflowing with amazing texture and flavor and we bet that you will most likely be asked to make it again!

12 | Drain linguini and add it to the creamy wine sauce, stir well to cover the pasta in the sauce.
