    Made this the other night, got the recipe from Food Wishes. com, Killer video site. Made it with a jalapeno vinegarette and some sauteed green beans in butter and garlic!

    S & P
    cayene pepper
    1 Tbsp EVOO
    1 TBSP Butter

    Season scallops with S&P and cayene.
    In a heavy skillet on high add the butter and oil add the scallops and sear for 2 minutes flip and cook for 1.5 minutes. Plate and drizzle Jalapeno vinagrette.

    Jalapeno vinagrette
    1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded, any white membranes removed
    1/4 cup rice vinegar
    *1/4 cup regular or light olive oil (extra virgin may be too strongly flavored for this subtly flavored dish)
    1/4 tsp Dijon mustard
    salt and pepper to taste
    Add all to a blender and puree set aside for a drizzle on the scallops

    Sauteed green beans
    •1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
    •3 medium garlic cloves, minced or pressed through garlic press (about 1 tablespoon)
    •1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
    •1 teaspoon olive oil
    •1 pound green beans, stem ends snapped off, beans cut into 2-inch pieces
    •Table salt and ground black pepper
    •1/4 cup water
    •2 teaspoons juice from 1 lemon
    •1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
    Combine butter, garlic, and thyme in small bowl; set aside. Heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until just smoking. Add beans, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until spotty brown, 4 to 6 minutes.

    Add water, cover, and cook until beans are bright green and still crisp, about 2 minutes. Remove cover, increase heat to high, and cook until water evaporates, 30 to 60 seconds.

    Add butter mixture and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until beans are crisp-tender, lightly browned, and beginning to wrinkle, 1 to 3 minutes longer. Transfer beans to serving bowl, toss with lemon juice and parsley; adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve immediately
