4 fresh scallops

50 gram clarified butter

30 gram high-quality butter

50 gram of soft Normandy butter

20 gram porcini powder (dry porcini ground in a spice grinder)

10 gram powdered sugar

30 gram chopped caramelized macadamia nuts

Sea salt to taste

 

Cannelloni

8 Portobello mushrooms (only the black part on top of the mushroom)

10 gram porcini powder

10 egg yolks

200 gram pasta dough (very fine)

200 gram dry ricotta

1 tablespoon of butter

1 teaspoon on orange and lemon zest

1 tablespoon roasted pine nuts

1 tablespoon on grated gruyere cheese.

 

Method

Scallop

Just before serving the dish, sear the scallops for 20 seconds on a boiling hot pan with the clarified butter (add salt & pepper just before searing). Now add the butter to the pan for 10 more seconds then remove the scallops from the fire and place on the plate.

 

Porcini Butter

Mix all the ingredients well and store at room temperature. When serving, place a full spoon of the porcini butter on top of each scallop.

 

Cannelloni

Remove the black part of the mushroom and dry for 3 hours in the oven (50°C). Grind to make a powder.

Mix the ingredients (mushrooms, porcini powder, egg yolks, pasta dough) in food processor to make pasta dough. Knead for 2 minutes. Wrap in cling film and set to rest for 30 minutes. Flatten using pasta machine until completely flat (size should be around 7 X 15 centimeters). Mix the ricotta cheese with the rest of the ingredients. Fill the pasta sheets with the ricotta mix and roll. While preparing the dish, place the cannelloni in a steam pot for 4 minutes until the dough is cooked. Brush with butter and place on the plate, on top of finely chopped spinach leaves.
