For the sauce: Add the butter to a small saucepan and heat on medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onions and sweat until light brown. Add the flour and stir until mixed. Add the white wine and mix with a whisk. Add the cream and lobster stock and bring to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the brandy, hot sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Cool and set aside. Warm in a small saucepan as needed.

For the seared scallops: Heat a nonstick pan over high heat. Add the oil. Then lightly salt the scallops and add to the pan. Cook the scallops about 1 1/2 minutes on each side.

Warm 4 ounces of lobster sauce and place on the plate. Land the scallops over the lobster sauce, drizzle with truffle oil and serve with rice or potatoes and your favorite vegetables.
