Scallops in Cream

This is one of the recipes which we have been given permission to reproduce by another of the UK recipe sites, Recipes4us. It is a big site with a wealth of information and recipes. If you would like to have a look at the website click here.

I asked to be able to feature more of their recipes as I consider that they have an excellent selection which are clearly laid out and interesting - making them one of the leading UK recipe sites.


6 - 8 Scallops
2 tbsp Olive Oil
Seasoned Plain flour
50g / 2oz Butter
50g / 2oz Button Mushrooms, sliced
1 Shallot, finely chopped
3 tbsp Dry White wine
125ml / 5 fl oz Single cream
Cayenne Pepper
2 tbsp Parmesan Cheese

  • Cut up the scallops and marinate in the oil and 1 teaspoon on the lemon juice for half an hour. Drain well and toss in flour.

  • Fry gently in the butter for a few minutes then divide equally between four shells or shallow heat proof dishes. Keep warm.
  • Preheat the grill.
  • Fry the mushrooms and shallots in the butter until softened then add the wine and reduce well. Stir in the cream and heat gently. Season with salt and cayenne and add a few drops of lemon juice.

  • Pour over the scallops, sprinkle with the cheese and brown under the grill.
