Every once in a while I come across a restaurant with real character. These eating establishments are usually small, have a loyal following, and have been around for years. The Back Porch Restaurant in Belle Vernon is quaint, comfortable, and most importantly, serves excellent food.

One wouldn’t think that bacon and seafood goes well together, but in this case it does. The natural sweetness of the sea scallops provides a surprising flavor balance when served with thick slabs of bacon.

I’ve had a few requests for more scallop recipes- this particular dish is prepared with a buerre blanc sauce. Buerre blanc is a traditional French sauce and means “white butter-” it’s an emulsified sauce that usually contains butter, a wine reduction, and shallots.
Scallops are sweet and delicate- they can easily be over-cooked, so be careful with your heat. The accompanying sauce is sweet, creamy and delicious.
