Scallops with orange and chervil vinaigrette

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2½ pounds Sea scallops
2 cups Orange juice
2 cups Dry white wine
1 bunch Scallions; sliced
⅓ cup Nicoise olives; pitted and sliced
3 mediums Tomatoes; seeded and chopped
1 \N Whole orange zest; finely chopped
3 tablespoons Fresh chervil; finely chopped
1 tablespoon Capers; drained
1 cup Fruity olive oil
\N \N Salt and pepper; to taste

Place scallops in a large skillet and pour over the orange juice and the wine. Heat to boiling, then reduce heat to low and simmer the scallops just until barely cooked through, 2-3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the scallops to a mixing bowl. Reduce the remaining liquid in the pan over high heat to ½ cup. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Add the scallions, olives, tomatoes, orange zest, chervil, and capers to the scallops - toss to combine. Whisk the reduced poaching liquid and the olive oil together. Season the dressing to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper. Pour over the scallop salad and toss to coat. Serve at once or refrigerate until ready to serve.
