Here are the recipes you’ll need to bring home the tastes of Napa Rose restaurant at Disneyland Resort! Learn how to whip up this Sautéed Sea of Cortez Rock Scallop with Sauce of Lemon, Lobster, and Vanilla—courtesy of Napa Rose Restaurant’s Executive Chef Andrew Sutton.
Sautéed Sea of Cortez Rock Scallop Ingredients:
12 each, large rock scallops or diver scallops
1/4 teaspoon, salt
2 tablespoon, clarified butter
1 1/2 cup, Chive Whipped Potatoes (recipe below)
1 1/2 cup, Lobster Sauce (recipe below)
Sautéed Sea of Cortez Rock Scallop Preparation:
Have Chive Whipped Potatoes ready. They can be held warm and ready to serve. Make Lobster Sauce and have it ready as well. Place scallops on a towel and season with salt. Over medium high heat, add 2 tablespoons of clarified butter to a large sauté pan. Make sure the pan is very hot, then add seasoned scallops with their flat sides down. Sauté for 4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Using kitchen tongs, turn scallops over and begin browning the opposite side. If they are cooking too quickly, reduce the heat to medium once scallops are cooked on both sides. To serve, place the hot Chive Whipped Potatoes in the center of the plate and set 2 scallops per person on top of the potatoes. Then with a spoon, pour Lobster Sauce evenly all the way around the scallops, making sure that everyone gets lots of garnish. Serve with a chilled, quality California chardonnay for an added treat.
Chive Whipped Potatoes Recipe
Chive Whipped Potatoes Ingredients:
3 each, russet potatoes, peeled
1/4 cup, snipped chives
2 tablespoons, unsalted butter
3/4 cup, heavy cream
2 tablespoons, sour cream
1 tablespoon, fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Chive Whipped Potatoes Preparation:
Place potatoes in a saucepot with enough cold water to cover potatoes by at least 3 inches. Place on burner set to medium heat and bring to a boil. Simmer for approximately 20 minutes or until tender. Drain off all excess water and transfer potatoes to a mixing bowl. Smash or pass potatoes through a ricer. Season with salt, chives, and add the butter and cream until potatoes are nice and moist. Add lemon, taste, and adjust seasoning if necessary.
Lemon, Lobster, and Vanilla Sauce Recipe
Lemon, Lobster, and Vanilla Sauce Ingredients:
1 tablespoon, clarified butter
2 each, minced shallots
1 cup, white wine
1 cup, chicken stock
1 each, vanilla bean (split) or 1/8-teaspoon of good vanilla extract
1 small pinch, saffron
3 tablespoons, diced tomatoes
1 each, lobster (steamed, cracked, and meat removed)
1 tablespoon, chopped thyme
1 tablespoon, lemon juice
6 tablespoons, whole unsalted butter
Lemon, Lobster, and Vanilla Sauce Preparation:
Over medium heat, sauté shallots lightly in clarified butter. Add the white wine and reduce by 70 percent. Add the chicken stock, vanilla, saffron, and reduce by 50 percent. Add tomatoes, lobster, chopped thyme, and lemon juice. Remove saucepot from heat and slowly whisk in unsalted butter. Mixture should resemble a creamy lobster and saffron stew. Taste sauce and adjust by adding salt or a few drops of lemon juice if necessary.
Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com
unFORECAST for the week of Monday April 20, 2015
CROWD PREDICTION: Back to short hours this week, and based on our Historical Crowd Index, we see mid-70s with crowds decreasing through the end of the month. There is also a chance of rain toward the end of the week which could throw a wrench in things. Friday and Sunday's have been the busiest days, but rain on Friday could cause the crowds to be significantly less. Have a great weekend! - Admin Apr 21, 2015 11:28AM
