"A quick and easy, but tasty microwaved scallop recipe. Great even for beginner cooks. My mother had given me this recipe, I'm not sure where she got it from, but I have made my own adaptations to it. Poulette is a French cooking term, referring to the type of sauce."

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Cover, and microwave on High for 2 minutes, then stir, and microwave for another 3 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.

Very flavorful. I also used fresh mushrooms, to use canned would be a shame. The sauce was a bit too thick so I thinned it out with more wine. I did this whole recipe in a frying pan, I don't...

I made this recipe on the stove top instead of the microwave. It's very simple to make even that way. I made a few changes to the recipe, and it came out absolutely delicious. I used sliced b...

I could not see doing this in the microwave for fear of turning the scallops into rubber. Unlike sea scallops, bay scallops are small (about the size of a dime), and this recipe calls for a tot...

Didn't care for this at all. Not much flavor.

Very good! Doubled the sauce but other than that we followed the recipe. Thank you!

Nice Recipe. Good for you using wine in any recipe; making it, if not French, certainly more tasty.
