Scallops au gratin

Active time: 30 minutes | Cook time: 20 minutes | Yield: 6 servings


  • 2 pounds sea scallops
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ tsp. curry powder
  • 3 large shallots, peeled and diced
  • 12 ounces cremini mushrooms, cleaned, stems discarded, sliced
  • 1 tbsp. of brandy
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup unsweetened, whole-grain cereals (Such as Ezekiel’s or Bob’s Red Mill’s), processed into crumbs
  • ¼ cup minced flat-leaf parsley
  • 4 ounces Gruyère cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a medium skillet over medium high heat, sauté shallots and mushrooms with a little olive oil, just to wilt them.
  2. In a mixing bowl, blend the garlic, brandy, parsley, crumbs, cheese, curry, yogurt and the shallot-mushroom mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Divide the scallops evenly into individual ovenproof dishes. Top each gratin dish with a handful or two of the mixture.
  4. When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 400.
  5. Place in the oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until the tops are lightly browned and bubbling and the scallops are cooked through.
