Hello Friends, I’ve always wanted to try mole with scallops since I saw saw it in a book. It paired a very modern white chocolate mole with scallops. Wanting to treat myself to a special meal today, I thought I would give it a go with my own mole.
I started with Mano Y Metate Mole Verde powder, sautéed in mild oil and thinned with chicken broth.
I broke out a stash of wild rice that a friend had given me as a gift. It was collected on lakes in northern Minnesota and parched over a wood fire.
For a wild salad, I harvested some sorrel, parsley and garlic chives from the garden.
For bite I added some volunteer mustard greens aka “wild arugula” and for creaminess some avacado.
The scallops only needed a rinse, a pat dry and a sprinkle of salt.
I seared in part oil and part butter on a hot skillet
Which went FAST!!!!
I hope you take the time for self care and make yourself a treat today, too. Love, Amy
