Scallops with Leeks and Morels on toast

Pine Spruce Branches 6
Tree Trunk
Morille Sauvage

Serves 4

12 scallops

1 finely minced shallot

25 grams of dried morels, rehydrated

 3 tablespoons sour cream

1 small white leek (6-7 cm long)

4 small slices of stale baguette not too thin

2 pieces of butter (1 + 1) 1 tsp olive oil

Salt and pepper from the mill

 

Melt the shallot in the not too hot butter. When it is transparent, add the morels, sprinkle them with part of the soaking juice and simmer for a few minutes, until practically no liquid remains. Season, add the cream, give a quick boil so that the cream thickens. Keep warm.

 

While the morels cook, cut the leek white into sticks and cook in a spoonful of water until it is tender, drain and add to the mushrooms at the same time as the cream.

 

In the pan, with the remaining knob of butter, brown the slices of bread, set aside. Heat the olive oil vigorously so as to sear the scallops for about 1 minute (or a little more as appropriate) on each side.

Arrange the morels with the leek fondue in the middle of the plate using a circle, sprinkle with a little creamy juice, add the scallops, wedging them well over the mushrooms, carefully remove the circle and poke the potato between seafood. Optionally decorate with a little sauce.
