Master chef

So some of my friends decided to have a friendly little cooking competition. The theme was to use only four ingredients, with only water and salt being freebies. I lost by just 1/8 of a point!

Anyway, I did a riff on Jean-Georges, and chose the following four ingredients:

1. U-10 scallops
2. Capers (packed in brine)
3. Golden raisins
4. Cauliflower

You can read the full recipe here. I wanted to work with scallops because oil isn't a freebie so I wanted to pick something which I could dry sear. The sauce was definitely the most surprising aspect, as it was only two ingredients but had a really nice flavor complexity; kind of sweet and sour. I wanted to find balsamic-marinated capers, but alas, none were to be found.

Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks.
