Scallops need little intervention to taste amazing, but they can easily be overcooked due to their delicate nature. Sous viding and then quickly searing the scallops ensures that they come out perfectly every time. Be sure to let the pan get nice and hot before adding the scallops – they should sizzle loudly as soon as you add them to the pan. In this recipe we pair our scallops with linguine and peas for an easy and delicious meal.
Sous Vide Scallops with Peas and Pasta
- 12 oz dry scallops
- 2 tsp vegetable oil
- 4 oz pappardelle or linguine nests
- ½ cup peas
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1) Pat scallops dry and season lightly with salt. Transfer to a vacuum bag and seal. Place scallops in a Suvie pan, cover with water, and insert into the top right zone of your Suvie. Place pappardelle nests in a starch pan and insert into your Suvie. Fill reservoir, input settings, and cook now or schedule.

2) After the cook, remove scallops from packaging and pat dry thoroughly. Heat vegetable oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the scallops and sear 30 seconds per side or until golden brown. Remove from skillets and set aside.
3) Add peas, pappardelle, and butter to empty skillet, stirring to coat pasta in butter. Cook for 1 minute and then remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide pasta and peas between plates, top with scallops, and serve.
