Recipe Ingredients for Sea Scallops with Corn Coulis and Tomatoes

1 teaspoon onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 ear corn
1 teaspoon fresh basil, finely chopped
1 pinch salt
1 pinch black pepper
1/4 cups rice milk
1 cup plum tomatoes, diced
1/2 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
10 large sea scallops

Recipe Directions for Sea Scallops with Corn Coulis and Tomatoes

  1. Cook shallot and garlic in 2 teaspoons oil in a small skillet over moderately low heat, stirring, until softened, about 1 minute. Add corn, basil, salt, and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until corn is tender and beginning to lightly brown on edges, about 4 minutes. Add milk and scrape up any brown bits from bottom of skillet, then remove from heat.

  2. Purée corn mixture in a blender at medium speed until very smooth, about 1 minute. Force purée through a fine-mesh sieve into a small saucepan, pressing hard on and then discarding solids. Cover coulis until ready to serve.

  3. Toss tomatoes with parsley and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl.

  4. Pat scallops dry and season with salt and pepper. Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a 12-inch nonstick heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté half of scallops, turning over once, until golden and just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes total. Transfer to a platter and keep warm, loosely covered with foil. Sauté remaining scallops in same manner.

  5. Reheat coulis over low heat, covered, then spoon 2 tablespoons onto center of each of 6 plates. Arrange 5 scallops per plate in a circle on coulis, then spoon tomatoes into center.
