Instructions
  1. Prepare heating salt block according to package instructions. (If this is your first time using the salt block, this could take about 30 minutes.)
  2. In a medium-low sauté pan over medium heat, sauté butter and shallot until shallot is translucent and starts to brown, about 4 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Add white wine and reduce until about 1 tablespoon remains in pan, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add cream and Parmesan. Stir a few minutes then allow to reduce for a few minutes. Once thickened, set aside.
  5. Season scallops with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  6. Once salt block is hot, place scallops on block, without allowing them to touch. Sear 1.5 to 2 minutes per side or until a golden brown crust appears. Remove from salt block.
  7. Serve about .25 cups of sauce (per serving) over pasta and top with scallops.
  8. Chef's Note: Garnish with parsley, green onion or try adding mushrooms to alfredo sauce.
