Add garlic and cook until aromatic.

Saute Scallops for 3 minutes a side, be careful not to overcook them or they will be chewy.

reserve scallops and add squash to start deglazing the pan, add vermouth (and a little water if it's too thick)

whole recipe takes about 15min.

Pairs Well With


A friend bought me some scallops at the farmer's market yesterday and I woke up this morning realizing I wouldn't have time to cook them unless I made them right away.

Looking around I decided to pair them with the leftover squash for some bulk to the sauce and the fresh sage was looking at me from the backyard.
