I have experimented a lot with pepper sauces, but never with yellow peppers. The flavor is so different than red or green peppers. This recipe has all of 7 ingredients and sometimes that's all it takes: great fresh ingredients cooked well.
This sauce turns out smooth and rich, almost like a beurre blanc. Use the best quality olive oil with a rich fruity flavor. The combination of the sweet pepper and fruity olive oil makes this silky sauce great with seafood.

|1 medium||yellow pepper|
|1 large||shallot (peeled)|
|3 tsp||extra virgin olive oil|
|fresh ground black pepper (to taste)|
|12 ounces||sea scallops|
Preheat the oven to 325°F. Place the pepper and the shallot in a large skillet and put the pan in the oven. Cook the pepper and shallot, turning about every 5 minutes. Roast the vegetables for about 20 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven. Place the pepper in a paper bag until it cools.
When the pepper is cool peel the skin and seed it. Place it in a blender or mini chopper with the shallot and water. Puree.
Force the puree through a fine mesh sieve. Add the olive oil, salt and pepper. Place the sauce in a small pan over low heat.
Place a large skillet over high heat and add 1 teaspoon olive oil. When the oil is very hot, add the scallops. Sear on the first side for about 4 minutes and turn. Cook for another 3 to 5 minutes and serve topped with the sauce.
