  1. Cut shallots into three horizontal slices. In a large skillet, cook shallots in butter over low heat for 2-3 minutes or just until softened. Add the scallops, wine, salt and pepper. Bring just to a boil and poach for 1-2 minutes over low heat. Using a slotted spoon, remove scallops and drain on paper towels.
  2. Boil poaching liquid, uncovered, over high heat for about 10-15 minutes or until reduced to 5-6 tablespoons. Add cream; return to a boil.
  3. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth. Stir into sauce; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Reduce heat to low; adjust seasonings if desired. Return scallops to skillet and heat through. Add lemon juice and sprinkle with parsley.

If prepared right, this recipe is as good as you will get. As a switch, I topped the seafood blend with creamy mashed potatoes & put it in the oven to broil to allow the potatoes to brown a lit...

This is one of my all time favorite recipes. As is it is very good. I serve it over rice. I used to have this as a kid, and my parents would add sauted diced red/green bell pepper and mushrooms....

thanks for this! it was perfect. Of course using Digby scallops always helps.
