  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Cook leeks and shallots, stirring, until crisp, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  • Place flour in a small bowl; dredge scallops. Return pan to heat; add remaining tablespoon oil. Cook half of scallops until golden, about 3 minutes per side. Season with salt and pepper. Cook remaining scallops.

  • Increase heat to medium high; add wine or 3/4 cup water. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up any brown bits on bottom of pan. Cook until liquid has reduced by half. Slowly whisk in the butter until sauce begins to thicken, about 2 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

  • Divide the squash and the leek mixture among four dinner plates; top with scallops. Drizzle with sauce, and garnish with chives. Serve.

My husband makes this all the time but he substitutes water and rice wine vinegar for the wine. We love it!

Phenomenal recipe. A lot of work, which is the only reason it is 4 instead of 5 stars.

This was a great recipe. I used a local dry white wine that had a peach flavour, i thought it complimented this dish nicely.
