Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; melt butter in the hot oil. Arrange scallops in the skillet, leaving space between each, and season with onion powder, sea salt, and black pepper. Cook scallops until lightly browned, about 4 minutes per side.
  2. Turn heat up to high and add vermouth, capers, and red pepper flakes to the skillet. Shake the pan to flip scallops and distribute capers and red pepper flakes. Cook until scallops are golden brown, glazed, and the vermouth has nearly evaporated, 5 to 8 minutes.

Excellent! I only used 8 scallops because my supermarket only had the large ones and I substituted vermouth for white wine. I made some fresh pasta to go with it and it was a huge hit.

Due to my sensitive innards I dispensed with the heat of the red pepper flakes but found even without it this was a 5-star recipe. I used less capers than the recipe directed so as to add a subtle, not overpowering flavor, which capers often can be. The butter and vermouth worked together to make a rich, brown pan sauce, the perfect finish to the meaty, sweet (use dry pack!) scallops.

Delicious. The scallops were cooked just right following these directions. I didn't use the pepper flakes because I don't like spicy food. I tasted the scallops by themselves, then ate them over pasta with alfredo sauce. They were delicious both ways! Great flavor.

WOW! I made these scallops for New Year's Eve dinner and they were a huge hit! In fact, I'm making them again tonight and it's only a few days later from when I first made them. Gosh, the capers really add a great saltiness to the sauce. I went a little easy on the red pepper but everything else was just as the recipe calls for. So glad I found this recipe! I've already shared it with a few friends.

Great easy recipe. I took out the capers and added chopped onion to the sauce we had it over linguine. I will definately make it again.

Such a quick and easy way to impress your friends and family! I used fresh garlic and sweet vermouth. These scallops were the highlight of the night!

Absolutely delicious! I eliminated the capers and added dried onion bits and fresh garlic with the olive oil. I would highly recommend this recipe. Thank you for sharing
