Scallops Poulette

Rated as 3.88 out of 5 Stars

"A quick and easy, but tasty microwaved scallop recipe. Great even for beginner cooks. My mother had given me this recipe, I'm not sure where she got it from, but I have made my own adaptations to it. Poulette is a French cooking term, referring to the type of sauce."

  1. Combine butter and onion in a 2-quart, microwave-safe casserole. Cover, and microwave on High for 2 minutes. Stir in flour until well blended, then stir in mushrooms, wine, salt, pepper, scallops, bay leaf, and lemon juice. Recover, and microwave on High for 6 minutes, or until the scallops turn opaque. Remove and discard the bay leaf.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the milk and egg yolk until combined. Stir the hot liquid from the scallops, about 1 tablespoon at a time into the milk mixture. When combined, stir the sauce back into the scallops.
  3. Cover, and microwave on High for 2 minutes, then stir, and microwave for another 3 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.

Very flavorful. I also used fresh mushrooms, to use canned would be a shame. The sauce was a bit too thick so I thinned it out with more wine. I did this whole recipe in a frying pan, I don't...

Very good! Doubled the sauce but other than that we followed the recipe. Thank you!

It was quick and easy, the sauce very tasty. I've made it a couple times now and each time I did use fresh mushrooms. Love Scallops !

I made a few changes. Instead of parsley added red pepper flakes as I served it. Instead of canned mushrooms I minced fresh mushrooms and added them to the melted butter before I made the roue...
