Perfect Winter Scallop Dish

Tuesday, January 27, 2015


We very nearly overload on scallops in the summer.  Easily grilled, seared or as used for ceviche, they work beautifully with light summer cooking.  I tended not to think of them as much in the winter before Shore Catch started offering locally caught seafood both at Headhouse Farmers’ Market and through Winter Harvest.  This recipe might change that.  As the name suggests, it is both Ina Garten’s and traditionally French, so it’s by no means light or summery.  But it’s perfect for a winter’s night waiting for the snow to arrive, as we did last night.  Not much snow, but with a creamy dish of mushrooms and scallops with a breadcrumb crust, we didn’t mind at all.  We ate it with a butter lettuce salad from Winter Harvest and Galen Glen’s Gruner Veltliner - the entire meal as local as we’d have made in midsummer.
