Chef Jason Howard from Bonefish Grill shows you how to put a spin on a classic seafood dish.

Seared Scallops

½ cup Lime Tomato Garlic Sauce
10 each Scallops, large (10-12 pieces per pound)
2 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 TBSP Vegetable Oil

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place a medium sized, oven-safe sauté pan over medium high heat. Season Scallops with Sea Salt and Black Pepper. Add 1 TBSP of vegetable oil to sauté pan. Sear the Scallops on both sides until caramelized, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer Scallops to the plate and pour Lime Tomato Garlic sauce on top. Serve with your favorite green vegetable and rice.

Lime Tomato Garlic Sauce

½ cup Fresh Tomatoes, chopped
½ cup Sun-Dried Tomatoes, chopped
½ cup Dry White Wine
Juice from 2 Lemons
Juice from 2 limes
4 TBSP Garlic, minced
4 TBSP Sugar, granulated
½ cup Heavy Cream
2 tsp Sea Salt
4 TBSP Butter, cut into Cubes

Warm saucepan over medium high heat. Place Fresh Tomatoes, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, White Wine, Lemon Juice, Lime Juice, Garlic, and Sugar in the saucepan. Simmer ingredients 5-6 minutes while stirring. The mixture will reduce by half.  Add Heavy Cream and Sea salt. Bring back to a simmer and reduce until sauce begins to thicken. Add cubed Butter slowly while whisking. Mix until fully combined. Lower heat to keep warm or serve immediately over the scallops.
