- Yield: 2 dozen
20/30 scallops (cleaned)
1 bunch spinach leaves (steamed)
1/8 tsp nutmeg
salt to taste
cracked pepper to taste
1 tbsp of unsalted butter (melted) per number of scallops
3 egg yolks
2 oz white wine
1 oz lemon vinegar
1 shallot sliced
1 sprig of thyme
Reduce to almost dry and add 2 oz of water and strain into egg yolk mixture. Cook this over a bain-marie (a pan heated via hot water bath), stirring constantly until mixture is thickened and pale in colour.
Slowly mix in melted butter until light and fluffy.
Season the scallops with the salt before searing them in the pan.
Sear scallops on both sides until golden brown.
Place on top of spinach and coat with hollandaise.
