Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound scallops

4 ears corn, kernels cut from the cob

2 tablespoons grapeseed oil

1/4 cup sliced shallots

1 cup chanterelle mushrooms

1 cup blanched and peeled fava beans

1 cup diced, roasted carrots

1 cup grilled sweet corn kernels

2 1/2 cups sliced fresh chervil

Salt and pepper

Directions

  1. In a medium size skillet, heat up the olive oil on high heat and sear the scallops for approximately 2 minutes on each side. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. Using a sharp knife cut the corn kernels off of the cob and put through a vegetable juicer. Place the corn juice into a small saucepot and bring to a simmer. Cook the corn sauce until it starts to thicken. Set aside and keep warm.
  3. Heat the grapeseed oil in a large saute pan over medium high heat. Add the shallots and saute until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and saute for 4 minutes. Add the remaining vegetables and saute until heated through, about 3 minutes. Transfer the Sauteed vegetables into a medium-size mixing bowl and toss with the warmed sweet corn sauce and chervil. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. To serve, place the succotash in the center of the plate, top with a few seared scallops, and drizzle some of the corn sauce around the plate.
