1/2 cup white wine
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 small garlic, minced
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon thyme

In a pan, sauté minced garlic in butter and olive oil over medium-high heat until thoroughly heated.
Pat dry the day boat scallops with a paper towel and add them to the pan. Cook for 2 minutes, then add the white wine.
Bring the mixture to a simmering boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir in thyme.
Remove one tablespoon of liquid from the pan and mix it with flour to create a small roux. Add the roux back into the pan, stirring well.
Pour in the heavy cream and cook until the mixture is warm.
Season the dish with salt and pepper to taste.
