Remoulade Of Saint Jacques
Coquilles Saint-Jacques, translated to Saint James Scallops, is one of the most popular ways to prepare scallops, which traditionally is a mixture of butter, cream, parmesan, and mushroom, baked in the shell. This recipe makes use of a rich and creamy remoulade to serve the scallops instead of the shells. The scallops are marinated in olive oil, lemon and rock salt for twenty four hours. This recipe is a much healthier version than the traditional Saint-Jacques recipe and can take the place of a salad since it is cool and refreshing. Serve this with a nice white wine or a glass of Beaujolais rouge for a highly satisfying gourmet meal. Get recipes for fish here.
