Bring first 4 ingredients plus 1/2 cup water to boil in a non reactive saucepan; simmer until liquid reduces to 1/2 cup, about 10 minutes. Strain mixture into a non reactive bowl and cool it lightly; discard solids. Stir in next 7 ingredients plus 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp white pepper.
Sprinkle scallops with salt and white pepper. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet. Working in batches to avoid overcrowding. Saut
