I actually wrote a recipe for this one...trial run was really good but changes were made and this was, how do I put it? YUM! So, the recipe...

Savory Scallop and Crab Pot Pie

¼ cup fresh parsley minced
4 stalks celery sliced
5 large green onions sliced
1 pkg. baby portabellas, sliced thick
1 bunch asparagus cut in 1” pieces
4 T butter
4 T flour (or more if needed)
32 oz carton chicken broth (simmered with bay leaves, fresh thyme, minced garlic and black pepper)
2 cups heavy cream
½ cup dry sherry
Salt/white pepper/cayenne pepper to taste
1 pkg. sea scallops (thawed)
1 can lump crab meat
2 deep dish pie crusts

Heat EVOO and 2T butter on medium/high heat in large skillet; add celery, onion, mushrooms and asparagus and sauté until tender/crisp, add parsley, stir and remove from heat. Melt 4T butter in large sauce pan over medium/high heat, add flour to make roux. Slowly add sherry, chicken broth and heavy cream, stirring constantly for several minutes. Add salt/pepper/cayenne. If mixture is too thin, add a little more flour. If too thick, add more broth or heavy cream. Add veggies, stir and turn heat to low. Coat scallops in melted butter. Grill over direct heat until almost done (crab meat was smoked indirectly with a maple dust foil bomb). Cut scallops into bite sized pieces. Add scallops and crab meat to filling, stir. Prepare crusts by cooking until mostly done (prick with fork if crust puffs up), remove from oven and add filling. Cover with second crust, brush egg wash on top and bake until top crust is golden brown.

Mouth is watering heavily. That looks freakin good. If I could buy sherry on Sunday I'd be tryin that today.

If it didn't matter it wouldn't matter!!!

That looks wonderful... and I don't care for asparagus!

Um...that happened a while back and I have posted this before...the wooden spoon is the perfect size so I can't bare to throw it out but yes, it met the full hot burner a couple of months ago. Nice grill marks on that baby, huh?!

I know my Wife will love it!
Thanks for the recipe!

That is an amazing looking pot pie. Thanks for the recipe and great pron.

I can barely imagine what it must be like to have two excellent cooks in the same household.

09-25-2011, 08:59 PM
It was without a doubt the best pot pie I've ever had.:-D

09-25-2011, 09:29 PM
Didn't sound good a first. It sure does look good though. :thumb:

I love pot pies. When I was growing up they were really good, but now they seem like they cut corners on taste. Your pies look like taste nirvana! Well done! :thumb:

You out did yourself on this one Michele! My wife and I both think this is off the hook and will try to recreate it. Thanks for posting the recipe too!

I had never written a recipe before so it was a bit tedious. I started off by writing out all of the ingredients but not the measurments since I was unsure exactly how much I'd need. I actully did not use all the chicken broth (used all but about 1/4 cup) but wanted it on hand just in case. I do hope you'll try it because it was really, really good (and post pron when you do)! You can change up the veggies. On my trial run I used celery, white onion, green onion, diced carrots and english peas. It turned out great too but I wanted something a little fancier so decided to drop the carrots, peas and regular onion and use asparagus and baby bellas.

^^^^^ What's funny is my wife had suggested I do a pot pie with the salmon and shrimp I ended up putting in the shells. After seeing yours, I'm glad I didn't. It wouldn't have compared...
