Seared Scallops, Sweet Corn Sauce, Black Truffle

Just a recent special at work. Pretty simple actually, but the flavors all work together.

Love scallops...I had some small bay scallops on a bed of wilted spinach the other night...really nice. The only problem...they were just an appy! I wanted at least a double hand full..!!!!!

Yes! I would love the sweet corn sauce recipe. Two of my favorite foods, corn and scallops (Black truffle ain't so bad either). Thanks for sharing, looks scrumptious!

The sauce has two seperate components but it's easy to make. Just make sure you use very fresh sweet corn or else you won't get the flavors. Adding sugar won't do it.

Sweet Corn Sauce

Yield: 4-6 Servings

6 ea., Fresh Sweet Corn (4 ea. for the sauce, 2 ea. to be sauteed)
1/2 c. Milk
6 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter
Kosher Salt
1 1/2 Tbsp. Chives, finely minced

Method:

Using a knife, carefully remove the kernels from the corn. Add the milk and the kernels for the sauce into a blender, and puree until smooth. Push through a fine chinois to extract the liquid only, and discard the pureed solids. Heat over medium while stirring to avoid burning until the natural starches thicken the sauce, about 5 minutes. Whisk in 4 Tbsp. of butter and season to taste with kosher salt. Reserve and keep warm.

Meanwhile, heat the remaining butter over medium heat and saute the remaining corn until tender, but still al dente. Season to taste with salt and mix in the chives just before serving.

Looks wonderful Ironchef! Scallops with the corn sauce sounds like a great combination. Dh doesnt like seafood :( I'll save this idea for when my sister visits this summer. She loves scallops! Thanks IC (good to see you, by the way)

Those sweet little bay scallops are only in season in the winter though. November to March. This has apparantly been a good season for them and prices are down.
