Rec: Scallops Poulette

1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 tablespoon minced onion
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 (4 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained
1/4 cup white wine
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound bay scallops
1 bay leaf
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 cup milk, light cream, or evaporated milk
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

Combine butter and onion in a 2-quart, microwave-safe
casserole. Cover, and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes.
Stir in flour until well blended, then stir in mushrooms,
wine, salt, pepper, scallops, bay leaf, and lemon juice.
Recover, and microwave on HIGH for 6 minutes, or until
the scallops turn opaque. Remove and discard the bay leaf.
In a small bowl, stir together the milk and egg yolk until
combined. Stir the hot liquid from the scallops, about 1
tablespoon at a time into the milk mixture. When
combined, stir the sauce back into the scallops. Cover,
and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes, then stir, and
microwave for another 3 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley
before serving.

Serves 4
