In a very hot pan with a bit of oil and a spoon of butter, add the scallops. Leave them until they're caramelized. They're ready when they don't stick to the pan and are nice and brown. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Remove from heat and put aside. Right before you serve, you can reheat them for 3 or 4 min in the oven at 375F.
- Bechamel sauce
In a pot, melt the butter, add the flour and cook at low heat while whisking non stop. Pour half of the fish stock and keep on whisking until the sauce becomes more thick. Add the rest of the stock, keep on whisking to avoid lumps.
Season to taste, remove from heat and let infuse.
Finely chop your leeks. In a hot pan with a spoon of butter, cook your leeks for 3-4 minutes. Deglaze with white wine, lower the heat and let simmer until all the liquid evaporates.
In the shell, put some leeks, then a scallop and cover with sauce.
Put in the oven under broil for a minute or two to give a nice coloration.
