How to Make Coquilles Saint-Jacques

Plays: 1960

In this video, you’ll see how to make a classic French dish, Coquilles Saint-Jacques. Fancy, yes, but actually easy to make. This is a rich scallop dish with mushrooms and shallots, smothered in butter, wine, and cream sauce, and broiled until the grated Gruyère cheese turns gorgeous golden brown. Chef John is using large sea scallops here, but the recipe also works with smaller, sweeter bay scallops. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Coquilles Saint-Jacques. Prep the ingredients ahead of time, and it’s a great (and thoroughly impressive) recipe for holiday entertaining. Rich and decadent, and yet somehow also light at the same time.
