Black & Bleu Scallops with
Mushroom and Pea Gnocchi


  • 3 oz Prosciutto, diced
  • 1 Shallot, minced
  • 8 oz package Gnocchi
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 can Hard Cider
  • 1 pint Heavy Cream
  • 4 oz Parmesan, Grated
  • 1 lb Scallops
  • 4 oz Mushrooms, Sliced
  • Zest from 1/2 lemon
  • Chili Flake for garnish
  • Pea shoots for garnish
  • 23 Tbsp Black & Bleu Compound Butter (1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature + 1 Tbsp Spiceology Black & Bleu blend – Mix well, place on parchment paper and seal well, and freeze to firm.)
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire


    1. Rinse and pat dry scallops and season with salt on a plate and set aside.
    2. In a sauté pan on medium heat, drop in your prosciutto and shallots and render your prosciutto while sweating the shallots.
    3. Now add your mushrooms and sauté until tender. Pour in your Worcestershire sauce, deglaze the pan with the apple cider vinegar.
    4. Up your temperature to medium-high heat and pour in your hard cider.
    5. Reduce half the cider then add your heavy cream.
    6. Once the cream is applied to the sauce, reduce to a simmer. Stir often to avoid scorching the cream to the bottom of the pan.
    7. Once the cream sauce has reduced half way, drop in lemon zest and parmesan cheese.
    8. Toss sauce with the gnocchi and simmer until the sauce is nappe (the consistency of a sauce that will coat the back of a spoon).
    9. While the sauce is simmering, you’ll want to get a medium size sauté pan on high heat to sear your scallops.
    10. Once the pan is smoking hot apply about a tablespoon of oil to the pan and move to medium-high heat.
    11. Set your scallops in the pan and sear. You’ll want to sear your scallop for 1-2 minutes before turning over and searing the opposite side.
    12. Once you turn your scallops you’ll now drop in your Black & Bleu compound butter and baste for another 2 minutes.
    13. Place finished scallops on a paper towel to drain off any excess butter and plate over your gnocchi and cream sauce.
    14. Garnish with pea shoots and chili flake and serve.
