Nantucket Bay Scallops
Just picked up a pound of these gems from the sea at Whole Foods at $30 lb. I was looking for cooking ideas, but the chowpolice moved my recipe request.
So in keeping with the 'rules' anyone know of any boston restaurants that are offering nantucket scallops on their menu's or as specials. They just came into season. I would love to try some chef preperations.
I tried them seared in butter over angel hair with a drizzle of truffle oil. I also served them with pureed celery root and brussle sprouts and leaves browned in butter and garlic with a drizzle of a Le Creme Chardonney/lemon buerre blanc.
So what restaurants are featuring these morsels of heaven from the sea????
Locke Ober generally has them in season..lightly broiled in butter,white wine and light bread crumbs.
Clio usuually has them..more creatively prepared.
There's an article in WSJ today on Nantucket Bay Scallops. It listed B&G Oysters (Scallop preparation: Served as a special; preparation varies) and Uni Sashimi Bar (Scallop preparation: On the half shell with fruit verjus, wasabi caviar and arugula flowers)
