Scallops in Saffron Sauce
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Serve in small dishes or cups as a starter to a nice roasted turkey dinner. This adds a bit of West Coast to the traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Provide local sour dough bread on the side.
1/4 cup hot water
Combine hot water and saffron in a glass measuring cup and set aside. In heavy bottomed saute pan, combine chopped onion, wine, salt and pepper. Simmer over medium heat about 4-5 minutes to soften the onion. Add diced tomatoes and saffron water, continue to simmer another 5 minutes. Add scallops and cook about 2 -3 minutes. Blend in the mascarpone and parsley, simmer about 3 minutes. Serve with bread!
