Sea Scallops With Yellow Pepper Sauce

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 375


1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds large sea scallops (20 scallops)

2 medium yellow bell pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup roughly diced yellow onion
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco green hot pepper sauce
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


TO MAKE THE MARINADE: In a medium bowl whisk together the marinade ingredients.

Wash the scallops and remove the small, tough side muscle (see REFERANCE & APPENDIX, _Sage Advice About Grilling Scallops). Add the scallops to the marinade and stir to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

TO MAKE THE SAUCE: Grill the peppers over Direct Medium heat until the skin is black and blistered on all sides, 10 to 12 minutes, turning every 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the peppers from the grill and place in a paper bag close tightly. Let stand for 10 to 15 minutes to steam off the skins. Peel away the charred skins. Cut off the tops, remove the seeds, and finely chop.

In a small sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil. Add the onion and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and peppers and cook for 3 to 4 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Add the vinegar, green pepper sauce, and salt. Purée in a food processor until the consistency of ketchup. If the sauce seems too thick, add a bit of water. If it seems too thin, simmer for a few minutes more to reduce it. Set aside.

Remove the scallops from the bowl and discard the marinade. Place the scallops on the grate 1 to 2 inches apart. Grill over Direct High heat until just opaque in the center, 4 to 6 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time. Meanwhile, reheat the sauce. Remove the scallops from the grill and serve warm with the sauce drizzled on top.
