RCP: Scallop and Herb Terrine

Postby Jenise » Thu Nov 23, 2006 4:19 pm

This is a reprint of a recipe I posted long ago on FLDG. I dug it out as I'm going to use it this morning to make individual terrines to serve as a first course at our Thanksgiving meal. This time I'm doing it all-shrimp, as I've had some large Malaysian Flower shrimp in my freezer for a long time that need using up. Anyway, if the recipe's good enough to use over and over again, it's good enough to share again.

I've been playing with this recipe all summer using different combinations of seafood and herbs, and have finally decided on a favorite--the simple, direct flavor of just scallops with dill and cilantro. I use dry-packed frozen wild scallops from Alaska.

1/2 lb scallops
1 tblsp butter
1/2 c V-8
2 tsps Worcestershire sauce
a dash or three hot sauce like Tabasco or Chilula
2 tblsp chopped fresh cilantro
2 tblsp fresh chopped dill (1 tblsp dried dill
the zest of one small lemon
1 c sour cream
1/2 tsp salt (if you used unsalted butter above)
ground white pepper
1 envelope unflavored gelatin

In a small saute pan, saute the scallops for two to four minutes depending on their size. Do NOT overcook! In another small pot, combine the V-8 and gelatin and stir while heating to dissolve the gelatin. (This step works well with a coffee cup in a microwave, too.) Set aside to cool.

When the scallops are done, remove them to a food processor and coarsely grind. Place in a bowl with the reserved cooking liquid and whisk in the remaining ingredients.

Pour the mixture into a three cup or larger dish or gelatine mold. Unmold by setting the dish into a larger dish containing a few cups of boiling water for about half a minute to loosen. Do not leave it too long or your mixture will melt.
My wine shopping and I have never had a problem. Just a perpetual race between the bankruptcy court and Hell.--Rogov
