Scallops Charlotte Recipe


Scallops Charlotte   

 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds scallops
 2 tablespoons butter
 2 tablespoons shallots, finely minced
 1/2 pound small mushrooms, sliced
 3/4 cup whipping cream
 4 tablespoons marsala wine
 salta and white pepper
 finely chopped chives or parsley

 

Directions:
 If you are using large sea scallops, cut them in half horizontally. If you have tiny bay scallops, they can be left whole. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add shallots and mushrooms; saute over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Remove to a bowl and set aside. Melt remaining butter in skillet. Add scallops. Saute 2 to 3 minutes, until scallops are opaque. Using a slotted spoon, remove scallops from skillet and add them to mushroom mixture; set aside. Add cream and wine to liquid in skillet. Add any juices that have accumulated in bowl of scallops. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until sauce reduces to 2/3 to 3/4 cup and thickens enough to lightly coat a spoon. Add mushroom and scallop mixture; cook to heat through. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve garnished with chives. Serves 6.
