Ingredients

  • 12 large sea scallops (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tomato, seeded and diced (about 1 cup)
  • 3 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Preparation

  1. 1. Pat scallops dry with paper towels. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add scallops to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove scallops from pan; keep warm.
  2. 2. Add garlic to pan; cook 15 seconds. Add wine and next 4 ingredients to pan. Spoon mixture over scallops; drizzle evenly with oil just before serving.
Note:

Always request dry-packed sea scallops. They tend to be fresher and haven't been soaked in water to increase their weight.
