- ½ cup dry white wine
- ½ cup fish stock
- 1 pinch kasubha (saffron)

- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 125 ml cup heavy cream

- Put wine, fish stock and saffron in a pan and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover and simmer gently for 15 minutes.

- Heat olive oil in large heavy bottom skillet. Add onion and garlic and cook for five minutes or until soft. Add scallops and cook gently for five minutes stirring occasionally, or until they turn just opaque. Be careful not to overcook.
