From Bon Appetit March 2007. In the UK, scallops come with the coral still attached, something I'm not used to, being American. This recipe does not call for the coral, but I used it anyway and it was rather good. One of our Zaar sisters (PhillyUKGirl) described them as 'silky and luxurious' and they definitely were! This recipe also calls for the scallops to be put into the oven. I did not do that step and just pan seared them. I have given the directions as written in the recipe, so you can do as you wish. The flavor of the lemon sauce is very subtle. It also calls for heavy cream but I used light cream as I didn't want a very thick sauce. The sauce can also be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate and bring to a simmer over medium heat before serving, whisking occasionally.
