Sautéed Scallops and Tomatoes on Garlic Toast

Any cocktail hour or dinner party (or Wednesday night, for that matter) will be instantly elevated with these hard-to-resist appetizers. Make the garlic toast before your guests arrive, if you like. Recipe from the Whole Foods Market website: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/165.

  • Yield: 6 servings ( Serving Size: 2 rounds )
  • Prep time:30 Minutes
  • Cook time:30 Minutes


  • 1 French baguette
  • 2 teaspoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 clove(s) of garlic, halved
  • 1 teaspoon(s) olive oil
  • 1/2 pound(s) sea scallops with liquor (about 12)
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) cracked black pepper
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 2 clove(s) garlic, minced
  • 1 large tomato, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 cup(s) fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) cayenne pepper


Slice French bread into rounds, brush with olive oil, and grill or broil until bread begins to turn golden. Rub with garlic cloves and set aside, covering loosely.

Brush remaining olive oil over the bottom of a heavy skillet. Sauté shallots and garlic until they begin to color, then add scallops, liquor and lemon juice. Heat until scallops begin to look opaque. Add cayenne, oregano, and tomatoes, stirring to blend. Continue cooking until scallops are white and tender.

Remove scallops from pan, placing one atop each round of toast. Heat the sauce for 2—3 minutes to reduce, then spoon tomatoes over scallops and drizzle with remaining sauce.
