Ingredients:
1 bunch fresh asparagus, sliced diagonally
1 carrot, peeled, diagonally sliced
2 green onions, sliced into 1/2-inch thick pieces
5 tablespoons chicken stock
cracked black pepper
2 roma tomatoes, sliced
1 teaspoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
24 plump scallops

Dressing:
1/4 cup vegetable or chicken stock
1 canned artichoke
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400°F. Place the asparagus, carrots, onions, and stock in a small pan. Season to taste with cracked pepper and bring to a boil. Cook 2–3 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in the tomatoes and keep warm.

Dissolve the sugar in the vinegar and set aside. Heat a frying pan with an ovenproof handle and add the oil. Season scallops on both sides with pepper and sear in hot pan for 1 minute. Add the sugared vinegar, rotate pan to distribute the liquid, and place in the oven for 2 minutes. Turn the scallops over then remove from pan.

Place the vegetables in the center of 4 warm plates, allowing the stock to spread out. Surround with 6 scallops and serve the dressing on the side.

To make the dressing, heat the chicken stock and boil the artichoke for 2–3 minutes. Place in a blender and purée, gradually adding the oil and lemon juice.
