People have been enjoying the fruits of the sea on the Isle of Man since 6500 BC. Here is a simple and scrumptious recipe for Manx Scallops Marsala.


1 pound bay scallops
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon chopped chives
1/3 teaspoon minced garlic
1/3 cup Marsala wine
Dash of salt and pepper


In a large pan over high heat, sauté the scallops with the butter and seasonings – they will cook very quickly. When scallops are firm but still moist, remove the pan from the stove. Stir in the wine, adding the cornstarch. Serve immediately with rice and vegetables.
