Seared Scallops with Potato Celery Root Purée

Thursday, December 28, 2017

For New Year’s Eve, Jeffrey and I love to go to a great bar with friends for a cocktail, then come home around 10pm for a late dinner. But at that hour, I need something I can prepare really fast! Seared Scallops & Potato Celery Root Purée is the perfect dish. I make the purée in advance and gently reheat it while I sear the scallops in a big sauté pan - and dinner is ready in no time. One year I even shaved a truffle on top- now that was a New Year's to remember!! Have a happy, healthy - and delicious! - New Year!!
