Seafood Au Gratin

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 pound bay or sea scallops, rinsed and drained
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons oat flour
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 cups hot chicken broth
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped shallots
  • 1 (4 ounce) can button mushrooms, drained
  • 1/2 cup white wine

Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly butter 8 small baking dishes.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Sauté shrimp and scallops until firm, about 5 minutes.
