    Recipe Introduction


    Found this doing web search. At home this dish should be served with a crisp white wine from Provance like Chateau Simone or a 1990 Dom Perignon, Diana's favorite Champagne. A 1992 Schramsberg California Blanc de Blanc is also wonderful! These and other fine wines are available from our friend Clyde Beffa at K&L Wine Merchants in Redwood City, California.

    Recipe



    INGREDIENTS

    Provencale Roasted Tomatoes(recipe follows); Garlic Confit(see separate recipe); 1 tablespoon poultry (chicken or turkey) fat; 12 Large Fresh Sea Scallops; Salt and freshly ground black pepper; Pinch of thyme; 24 fresh basil leaves, rinsed in cold water & patted dry.


    PREPARATION


    1. Before you plan to serve the scallops, prepare and bake the Provencale Roast Tomatoes (Recipe below). At this time prepare the garlic Confit (Recipe below) as well.

    2. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat the poultry fat until it is hot but not yet sizzling. Add the scallops and cook them until they are almost opague all the way through: about 3 minutes. Once cooked season the scallops generously with salt, pepper and thyme. You may want to cook the the scallops in batches (or in a wok). If so, keep the cooked scallops warm next to the stove but do not place them in an oven because the scallops will become toughened.

    3. Place 3 scallops on each of 4 warmed dinner plates. Cut the basil leaves with kitchen scissors and sprinkle the basil on top of the cooked scallops. Spoon several cloves of garlic and a touch of of oil along side each. Place 2 baked tomatoes alongside and serve immediately! YIELD: 4 servings
