How to Make It

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season sea scallops with salt and pepper; add to pan. Sear for 1 minute per side or until golden brown. Remove scallops; set aside. Using same pan over medium heat, carefully add 2 teaspoons olive oil and minced garlic; cook for 1 minute. Add sliced shiitake mushrooms, and cook for 1-2 minutes or until mushrooms soften and release their juices. Add oregano and thyme, and cook 1 minute more or until fragrant. Add spinach and vermouth, and cook for 30 seconds or until spinach just begins to wilt; return scallops to pan, and cook 3 minutes more. Serve.

This is a good recipe. The wine should be added after the mushrooms and reduced to remove the alcohol. I used dry sherry.

I think it was the vermouth, but it was very bitter and disappointing. Wouldnt make again and I love cooking light recipes

This was super quick (15 mins or less) and tasted amazing!! The sauce really made the dish. I used crushed red pepper flakes instead of the ground and it tasted great. Make this now!

We just had this for dinner tonight and it was OUTSTANDING! I cut the recipe in half since it was just two of us. I served it over pasta and had sliced tomatoes on the side....The flavors were just wonderful. This is a keeper.
