Catholic Recipe: Sea Scallops in Clover
Using green noodles gives the impression of scallops resting in clover. A nice presentation dish for days of abstinence.
Defrost scallops, if frozen. Combine scallops, onion, salt, and pepper in saucepan. Add boiling water to cover; simmer 10 minutes; drain, saving broth. Melt 1/4 cup butter; blend in flour, Tabasco, oregano, and paprika. Add 1 cup of the scallop broth and the cream. Stir constantly over low heat until smooth and thickened. Pour a little of this sauce on egg yolks; blend well; return to rest of sauce; mix well. Add mushrooms, liquid and all; stir well. Add scallops and more salt, if necessary. Spoon noodles into buttered shallow baking dish; top with scallop mixture; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese; dot with remaining butter. Brown under broiler. Makes 4 to 5 servings.Recipe Source: Cook's Blessings, The by Demetria Taylor, Random House, New York, 1965
