Baked Scallops Aux Herbs

By Chef K.T. Murphy


3 lb scallops, sea or bayscallops-with-herbed-brown-butter
4 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup parsley, fresh; firmly packed (1/4 cup separate)
5 tablespoon chives; snipped
1 garlic cloves, minced
6 shallots; peeled
2 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper


Wash and drain scallops. If using large sea scallops, cut each into 2 or 3 equal slices. Divide scallops among 8 individual ramekins or a 13-inch gratin dish.

Melt butter, mix with wine Mince parsley and chives together. Set aside 1 TBL, stir rest into butter mixture. Add seasonings, pour over scallops and cover with foil. The scallops can be prepared up to 4 hours in advance, refrigerated.

Preheat oven to 425^. Bake ramekins 10 minutes, gratin dish 20-25 minutes or until scallop liquid froths. Watch carefully–overcooked scallops are tough.

Sprinkle with reserved parsley mixture.

All the best, Good Food makes For Better Decisions.
