Pan-seared Scallops
Photographer: Howard L. Puckett


Recipe: Pan-seared Scallops with Asparagus and Pancetta

Try it with: Sancerre, Chardonnay

Julia loves: 2005 Domaine André Neveu Sancerre, about $30

Asparagus is often tricky with wine, but the combination of sweet scallops and salty/smoky pancetta will stand out with a medium- to full-bodied white.
