    Hi Chef,
    My husband LOVES scallops. This recipe sounds easy to do. Thanks!
    However, wouldn't it be easier to make it in individual small dishes (like ramekins) and just leave the pastry on the top?
    Anyway, I am definitely going to make this as a first course forValentine's Evening. The entree will be my rack-of-lamb w/ roastedaspargus and rosemary/garlic roasted potatoes. My husband and I aretired of the restaurant circus on Valentine's Day/Evening - so I preferto cook at home.
    Now, do you have a good desert to add for this? My husband do not caremuch for chocolate deserts. Something fruity will be a lot better.Maybe my old stand-by: Blueberry crisp. Thanks again fior the scallops.

    Yes the scallops would be great as little pot pie presentations as well

    for dessert if you like blueberries I reccomend a blueberry white chocolate crostata

    par bake a short crust in a fluted mold

    heat some heavy cream and pour over white chocolate in a food processor and pulse

    add a little mascarpone or cream cheese and a shot of sambucca or grand marnier

    then just set in the fridge

    or a blueberry bread pudding would be nice, find some day old muffins or croissants

    I am making the scalops in individual dishes w/ the crust on top. Did you see the " blueberry white chocolate crostata"á he suggested? I am making that too -- and I am trying to loose weight? -- Ha, so much for that tonight.
    Happy Valentine's Day to you too my friend, may it be sweet and happy. - Pingo

    Hi chef - just wanted to tell you the Scallops Tartin was a great hit,even though my hubby said, "Are we having chicken pot pies?". But whenhe dug into them - he told me I could absolutely make those again. Ithink this would be as wonderful w/ shrimps or lobster.
    Theá next time I make them, I will experiment with make my owncrust I make for my chicken pot pies. I make a normal piecrust but addthyme to it. Think it will go well w/ the scallops, since it alreadyhas thyme in it.
    Thanks again chef!
