Pan seared scallops with balsamic white wine sauce. As is from Cooking Light September 2002. I usually add either a touch of thyme or some penzey's mural of flavor at the end to liven up the sauce.

Made exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. This method really lets the scallops shine. When the large sea scallops are really fresh, they don't need much, because they are sweet and juicy, and this recipe is perfect. Made for Best of 2011 game.
