1 bunch pea shoots
Kosher salt
6 sea scallops (optional)

Place as many peeled pieces of garlic as you wish in a saucepan. Cover with olive oil.
Simmer on low heat until the garlic is a deep brown. Turn off heat.
When the oil has cooled, separate garlic cloves and oil with a sieve, reserving both oil and garlic in separate containers.
Place two tablespoons of garlic oil in a hot pan over medium heat.
Add a bunch of pea shoots. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Stir just until wilted.
Toss in a handful of caramelized garlic cloves.
Serve as a side dish or top with seared scallops for a main course.
