Garlic Mashed Potatoes
1 See recipe in the Starch section. Be sure potatoes are very smooth.
1 Heat a little oil in a pan just to smoking. Pat the scallops dry. Season with salt. Place the scallops in the pan and sear on one side until browned with a crisp crust (about 2-3 minutes). Turn and sear on the other side an additional 1 minute.
2 Remove the scallops and let rest 2 or 3 minutes. Cut into bite-sized wedges.
Red Pepper Pureť
1 Roast red pepper over grill until the skin is blackened and blistered. Place in a covered bowl and let steam for 10 minutes. Remove skin from pepper, then slice and remove seeds and membrane.
2 Cut flesh into chunks and place in a blender. Pureť until smooth, adding olive oil to reach desired consistency. Pureť should be slightly thick.
1 On single spoon, pipe about 1 tbs garlic mashed potato. Next place a small piece (about the size of the spoon) of scallop. Top with a dot of the red pepper puree'. Serve hot.
