1 1/2 cups fresh favas

Corn:

6 whole yellow corn on the cob

Splash cream

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

5 carrots

2 small yellow onions

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/2 cup fresh favas

1/2 cup English peas

Bone Marrow:

5 marrow bones, marrow removed from bone

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 tablespoon Aleppo chili pepper

Vegetable oil

Plating:

1 lemon

3 oranges

1 package micro mix

Directions

  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, make sure that there is an ice bath ready. Blanch the peas and favas separately. Drain and immediately add them to an ice bath.

Corn:

  1. Remove kernels from the corn cobs and reserve the cobs. Add the cobs to a pot with water and cook for 25 minutes to create a quick stock. Next, run the corn through a juicer, strain the liquid and heat slowly in a stainless pot. Add a touch of cream to reinforce the sauce, season with salt and pepper and set aside. Next, finely dice the carrots and onions. Add the butter to a saute pan over medium heat and add the carrots, onions, favas, peas. Cook until tender. Stir in some of the corn stock to make a sauce. Remove from the heat, season with salt and pepper and reserve.

Bone Marrow:

  1. Combine the flour and chili pepper. Toss the bone marrow lightly with the flour mixture. Place the marrow in a pan and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 8 to 10 minutes. Heat a skillet with some oil, add the scallops and cook until golden brown on each side.

Plating:

  1. To plate: place a line of the sauce down on each dish. Top with the blanched peas and favas. Using a zester, zest some of the lemons and oranges and sprinkle over the vegetables. Place the scallops and roasted bone marrow around the vegetables and. garnish with micro mix and sea salt.
