Easy Coquilles St. Jacques

Serve this entrée with a green salad or sautéed greens.

Ingredients for 4 servings

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus extra for the gratin dishes
1 finely diced large shallot
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour or gluten-free flour
1/2 cup seafood stock or clam juice
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon seafood seasoning (Old Bay)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 ounces cremini mushrooms, chopped
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
3 ounces grated Gruyère cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 pounds fresh bay scallops or sea scallops cut in half

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and place four (1 1/2-cup) gratin dishes on sheet pans. Lightly coat the dishes with butter

Combine the fresh bread crumbs, parsley, and olive oil in a medium bowl and stir to moisten the crumbs. Stir in the cheese. Set aside.

Dry the scallops well on paper towels.

In a medium-size saucepan, melt the 2 tablespoons of butter over medium-low heat.

Add the shallots and garlic and saute for just a minute or so.

Add the mushrooms and seafood seasoning. Saute, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms no longer release moisture.

Add the flour and cook for 2 minutes, whisking constantly. Add the wine and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the seafood stock and cream.

Season with a little with salt and pepper..Take the saucepan off the heat and add the scallops and mix carefully with a silicone spatula.

Divide the mixture equally among the gratin dishes.

Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture evenly on top of each gratin dish and bake for 20 minutes, until the crumbs are lightly browned and the sauce is bubbly. Serve immediately.

Easy BBQ Shrimp

Serve this entrée with potato salad and a tomato or cucumber salad.

4 servings

Ingredients

1 lb jumbo shrimp (16 per lb), cleaned, deveined and shells removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
½ cup homemade or store-bought BBQ sauce
Link to my homemade recipe.

Directions

For cooking outdoors: heat an outdoor grill to high and oil the grill grates. For cooking indoors: heat a stovetop grill pan over medium heat for 5-6 minutes.

In a glass dish mix the shrimp with the olive oil and sprinkle them generously with the salt and pepper.

Thread the shrimp on skewers and place them on the grill, if cooking outdoors. Place in a single layer in the grill pan, if cooking indoors.

Cook until grill marks appear and the shrimp turn deep pink, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Place the BBQ sauce in the dish that held the shrimp and warm the sauce in the microwave.

When the shrimp come off the grill, slide them off the skewers or out of the grill pan into the dish with the barbecue sauce and toss gently to coat. Serve immediately.
