This is my style of scallop dish; simple, light and unadorned. This looks like an addictive dish, the highbrow version of popcorn shrimp that you won’t be able to stop popping in your mouth, and your lovers' for that matter, but even love can’t always compete with mind-bending deliciousness!

Nantucket Bay Scallops with Bay-Scented Butter
There’s a little butter here, and touch of toastiness from panko breadcrumbs, so this might be a perfect match for a Chardonnay with a kiss of oak, something crisp and pure, and preferably from Chablis one would think. 2010 was a wonderful vintage with just the kind of focus one should be looking for, and while the wines are not inexpensive, I’ve found two great values worth checking out.
