Recipe by Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook. Vinny Dotolo found inspiration for this elegant dish by thinking about New Year's Eve classics. Both Champagne and caviar flavor the butter sauce that he spoons over seared scallops set on mini potato pancakes F&W Magazine, Januaey 2010 edition. From: Dinner Party for a New Decade.:) Lovely! Wine Pairing: Just as Champagne pairs well with caviar, so does sparkling Vouvray, which is a bit richer and fruitier. Two to try with these scallops in caviar sauce are the bright NV François Pinon Vouvray Brut and the lightly herbal NV Champalou Vouvray Pétillant Brut.
