Scallops Parmesan ... delicious low carb food !

These are elegant little appetizers 'kissed with the flavours of wine and cheese ... everything about these are right ' says Anne Aobadia. You could start a special dinner party with these ... and they are low carb too! You could even consider this dish for a Valentine's Day starter!

Serves Four
5g carbs per serving

8 scallops
1 tablespoon butter
1 shallot, finely chopped
4 tablespoons / 60ml white wine
1 cup / 240ml heavy (double) whipping cream
1⁄6 oz. / 30g grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper

You may like to pair these with different types of dry wine, to accentuate the delicate flavours.
Please see Anne Aobadia's recipe instructions at Diet Doctor site here

Parmesan seems to go without about everything doesn't it?
Hope you've had a grand weekend.
