Instructions

  1. Pierce potatoes. In a saucepan, cover potatoes with cold water; bring to a boil over high heat. Add 2 tsp (2 mL) salt; reduce heat and boil gently for about 20 minutes or until fork-tender.
  2. Drain; cut potatoes into thin slices, cover to keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, rinse scallops and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium high. Add butter and swirl to coat pan. Add scallops and brown for about 2 minutes per side, turning once.
  4. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Reduce heat to medium low; add garlic and sauté for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add wine and simmer, stirring, until reduced by about half. Add cream and return to a boil, stirring often, for about 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Return scallops to pan; turn to coat in sauce. Simmer for 1 minute or until just slightly firm at the edges.
  5. Fan 3 potatoes in the centre of each serving plate; top with spinach. Arrange scallops around spinach; drizzle with sauce.
  • Be sure not to overcook scallops to keep them nice and tender. They should be well-browned and firm just around the edges.
  • You can substitute 18% cream whisked with 1 tbsp (15 mL) all purpose flour for the 35% cream if desired.
