Recipe: Saint Jacques with yellow wine

Recipe for Saint Jacques with yellow wine, and yes I still had some yellow wine and the Saint Jacques were waiting in the freezer. What a wonderful idea to pair scallops with leeks and a yellow wine sauce. Saint Jacques with yellow wine, I will do the recipe again, I loved it and in the house, it was not just me. I love the flesh of the Saint Jacques especially if the cooking is perfect, I used frozen Saint Jacques nuts, it is true that I like to cook them fresh, but for the moment they are much too expensive. By letting them drain well of all their water I was not disappointed. So a lot of pleasure with these Saint Jacques with yellow wine, this characterful sauce and the sweetness of the nuts.
