Perfect for a special occasion, the root vegetable mash and herb sauce compliment the seafood in this dish. Use fresh diver scallops to get a good sear.
Many markets sell diver scallops - but beware. Ask the purveyor if they are wet or dry scallops? Wet scallops have been soaked in phosphates to preserve them, but the scallops also soak up additional water, making it impossible to get a good sear.
Dry scallops are never soaked and will produce a beautiful sear every time. Avoid wet scallops if you can.
