How to make it

  • The trick to making this is to use a VERY hot pan to sear the scallops - then quickly add the minced garlic - it is the quick cooking of the scallops and garlic that give this dish the dark color for the sauce - it is a tricky dish to make.
  • Then add the diced tomatoes, onion and mushrooms -- this cools the pan down enough so the scallops and garlic stop cooking.
  • The tricky part is cooking the scallops and garlic long enough in the VERY hot pan to brown them but not burn them - adding the tomato first helps cool it down, then the onions & mushrooms and cook a minute or two -- then and some white wine.
  • Simmer for a minute or so longer, remove from heat and add cold butter and swirl to finish the sauce.
