This was delicious. We used 4 scallops per person and used spinach instead of lettuce (a great iron boost and more flavor). We also used half-and-half instead of whipping cream (this saves 78 calories per serving and still tastes great!). We served it with cooked barley and steamed asparagus. Very good! I love the delicate flavor of the tarragon in this dish!
This recipe had wonderful flavor and came together well. I increased amounts to serve 4, but that gave us too much liquid and too many shallots. Next time I will increase the scallops but keep the sauce amounts the same as for serving 2. I also served this over spinach instead of butter lettuce (personal preference). Served with rice pilaf and crusty gruyere bread made this a dinner fit for a king. Really delicious!
