Sea Scallops a la Ventana
In Big Sur, CA. we had the pleasure of hiking through some of the most beautiful scenery, followed by truly fine dining. Here is a simple recipe graciously shared by Ventana Restaurant.
Fresh sea scallops
Canola oil and olive oil
Truffle oil (optional)
Sear scallops in a mixture of canola oil and olive oil.
Cook sliced mushrooms in butter.
Add white wine and cook until wine is reduced.
Turn off heat, add a pat of butter, seared scallops, and if available, drizzle with a little truffle oil.
