Recipe Type: scallops, seafood, pasta, cream, main entree

Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time:15 min
Serves: 2

Ingredients:

6 ounces Angel Hair pasta

1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon white onion, finely chopped
1 small garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons dry white wine
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
salt to taste
white pepper to taste

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon butter
6 large sea scallop, side muscle removed, patted dry
salt to taste
Thyme
or parsley for garnish

Instruction:

Prepare Angel Hair pasta according to package direction.

To make the sauce:
In a skillet sauté white onion and garlic in butter over medium high heat until transparent, do not let it turn brown. Deglaze the pan with white wine reducing liquid to half. Add the cream, reduce again by half or until sauce coats the back of a spoon and large bubbles appear; add the vanilla and salt to taste. Set aside.

To cook scallops:
In another skillet with oil and butter over high heat, quickly sear the scallops for 2 minutes each side, do not overcook or they will be tough and rubbery.

To serve, spoon sauce onto plates; twirl pasta around a long-tined fork (to make this job easier, I put one serving of pasta in a teacup), slip off onto plates atop the sauce. Add 3 cooked scallops per plate, garnish with thyme or parsley and serve this fantastic scallop
entree.

Wine recommendation: Pinot Gris; Champagne
