Rich and Creamy Coquilles St. Jacques

Recipe by lazyme

A very good version of scallops and mushrooms in wine sauce. I usually just slice the mushrooms rather than dice them - I like to taste 'bites' of mushrooms. This is from Pol Martin, a well-known Canadian chef.

Fantastic recipe! DH and I enjoyed every bite. I used bay scallops, which worked well and slightly more mushroom than called for (6 oz portobella). I served over mashed potatoes as another reviewer suggested. This was so flavorful! It is going into my keeper file. Thanks!
