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.

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.
