I got this recipe from Epicurean magazine. It's a delicious way to serve scallops without butter. Perfect when paired with pasta

This is a great recipe! I forgot the thyme and used half scallops and half shrimp because that's what I had on hand. The fresh basil really makes this dish. I served it over linguine noodles with a little sqeeze of lemon. Very good. Since this is so easy and we usually have the ingredients on hand, I can see making this quite often. Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a non-stick skillet large enough to hold the scallops in one layer heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over high heat until it is hot but not smoking and in it sear the scallops for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and just cooked through.
  2. Transfer the scallops with a slotted spoon to a small platter and keep them warm, covered loosely.
  3. Add the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons oil to the skillet and in it cook the garlic over moderate heat, stirring, until it is pale golden.
  4. Add the tomato and the thyme and cook the mixture, stirring, for 1 minute.
  5. Season the tomato mixture with salt and pepper, spoon it over and around the scallops, and sprinkle the scallops provencale with the basil.
