Scallops revisited…

scallop starter course


pan seared sea scallops, homemade potato gnocchi, sweet corn puree, baby squash, black truffle butter sauce…


note to the home cook: always ask your fish monger for ‘dry pack’ scallops… they are sweeter and tastier, as they dont have any added preservatives (read:tripolyphosphates) that extend shelf life, and cause them to absorb water, thereby diluting their flavor, and causing them to release liquid when they are cooked. good cooking starts with good products. period.
