  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Dry the scallops very well with a paper towel. Season both sides with salt.
  • Add garlic to pan and sauté until fragrant. Add scallops to the pan without crowding. Cook scallops without moving them, until the bottoms are a rich golden brown, about 3 minutes. Gently flip the scallops and caramelize the second side, about 1 ½ to 2 minutes. Transfer scallops to a clean plate and lightly cover to keep warm.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain, reserving ½ cup of pasta water.
  • In the same pan, heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the wine and simmer, stirring as needed, until the wine is reduced by half and you can no longer smell the alcohol, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes and cook stirring as needed until blistered, about 7-8 minutes. Add the capers and cook on high for 8 more minutes.
  • Add the hot pasta and pasta water to skillet. Toss to coat.
  • Transfer scallops to plate and spoon tomato sauce over scallops. Serve sprinkled with fresh parsley.
