For the mustard IPA cream sauce

Boil the beer with the shallots in medium-sized saucepan for about 12 minutes. Add the water, poultry seasoning, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Scallop Shopping Tip

A fresh fish should not smell fishy nor have milky, opaque eyes; it should have bright red gills, firm flesh, and a tight anal cavity.

Scallop Cooking Tip

Whole fish should be stored upright in ice in the refrigerator.
