  2. For spinach and mushrooms: Saute spinach and mushrooms in olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Reserve hot.
  3. For beurre blanc: In a saucepan, saute shallots and garlic with olive oil. Place the rosemary on a sheet tray and place under a broiler so that the rosemary catches on fire. Add to the saute pan. Add thyme, vinegar, and cream. Reduce by half. Slowly incorporate the butter whisking a cube at a time in. Make sure to not keep the pan over the flame, let the residual heat of the reduced mixture melt the butter.Strain through a fine seive. Serve immediately.
  4. Season the scallops with salt and pepper. Sear in a nonstick pan, with the heat at med-high. Serve in half olive oil and half butter (about 1/2 T each).
  5. For charred rosemary breadcrumbs: Reserve some charred rosemary from the beurre blanc. Add rosemary to a blender with the panko breadcrumbs. Pulse until very fine. Season with salt and pepper.
