​​​Bay Scallops with Creamy Lemon and Herbs Yolk Sauce on a bed of Asparagus

Bay scallops are relatively small but these tiny beige to light pink bivalves are large in taste. I also chose to flambé them to add an extra element of taste. They are delicate, tender in texture, and sweet in taste. I paired them with the amazing taste of asparagus whose pale green, juicy stems have their own unique woody flavor. To bring them both together I created a lemon and herbs yolk sauce which marries the land spears to these beauties of the bay into one unforgettable dish. TIP: You can create all three components simultaneously on the stove. To do so you'll need 1 sauce pan, 2 large skillets and 1 large bowl of ice water.
