Scallops, grilled on a spinach bed

Yield: 2 Servings

Measure Ingredient
7 tablespoons Butter
6 Whole sea scallops
8 ounces Mushroom caps -- quartered
1 tablespoon Fresh ginger root -- grated
1 can Water chestnuts, canned --
Drained
Sliced
2 Whole lemon -- juiced
1 pack Fresh spinach -- rinsed and
Drained
Canola oil

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over moderate-high heat. Add scallops and cook until slightly firm to touch while remaining milky white.

Remove scallops from skillet.

Saute mushrooms in 1-2 tablespoons butter in same skillet. Add ginger and water chestnuts. Reduce liquid by half. Add juice of 1 lemon or to taste.

Remove from heat and quickly stir in 3-4 tablespoons chilled butter. (This will allow the sauce to thicken.) Return scallops to skillet and heat thoroughly.

In large bowl, sprinkle spinach with remaining lemon juice and drizzle with canola oil. Cover with wax paper and microwave on high for approximately 1 minute. Arrange wilted leaves on each plate, top with scallops and sauce.
