The blogger Rebecca from “Verlockendes” has tested our scallops and created this recipe for Christmas. If you are looking for allying taste and celebration, you found the good recipe!
For 4 persons
2 sachets of scallops (400g)
2 large mature pears
600g of potatoes (firm or floury flesh)
200g of butter + a bit to sear
A few sprigs of fresh thyme
1. Thaw the scallops according to the instructions gave on the packaging. Rinse under cold and clear water, then wipe. Set aside until a future use.
2. Prepare the potatoes: peel and cut them in pieces. Let cook for 20 minutes in salted water. In the meantime, peel the pears and cut thinly into dices. Jug in a frying pan with a piece of butter. Finally, add some thyme leaves and set aside the pears dices. When the potatoes are cooked, add some salt, pepper and some nutmeg. Let reduce everything and keep some consistency. Dispose then the pears delicately.
3. Dispose on a plate a few dashes of balsamic cream, a bit of cranberries (cut in slices) and a few sprigs of thyme. Dispose the potatoes on a plate, add some garnishment in half-moon around. You can reuse the garnishment (the form) for a dessert.
4. Warm up a bit of oil in a frying pan. Once the oil is hot, grill the scallops on each side. Place then the balsamic cream and garnish some freshly ground pepper.
