A visit to the fishmonger this morning had us salivating and wanting everything. It’s so nice that a least one person in the family shares my love of fish and it’s relatives. The fish market’s owner is such a nice guy and he tries to speak to us in French with an American accent; he’s so cute! Today he had large, white, live scallops. Beautiful. He separated the scallops from the shell and we were almost ready to broil.
The scallops are quickly seared on each side then placed on the half shell with a generous knob of flavored butter, then broiled.
Wine suggestion: Petit Chablis
