2tsp. salt & pepper blend
1 1/2 oz. Pomace oil

3/4 oz. asparagus 1" bias cuts
1 Tbsp. Butter, lightly salted
1 pinch of salt

2oz. Lobster cream sauce
1tsp. chopped parsley
1. Cut the puff pastry into a square 4"x4", make a second cut in the puff pastry 1/2" from the edge going around the entire square execpt do not cut 2 opposite corners so that it's still 1 piece.
Carefully pull up on the 2 opposite corners and set them back on the pastry square makeing a raised edge all the way around. Dock the top of the pastry with a fork and place on a sheet pan.
Combine the egg and water then brush the top of the pastry. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
2. Remove side mussel from scallops and season with salt and pepper. In a pan set on high heat add 1 1/2 oz. pomace oil then sear scallops on both sides 3-4 minutes until bottom and edges of the scallop are golden brown.
3. Cut the carrots into 1/8' wide x 2" long julienne. Remove the stem on the shiitake mushrooms then cut into 1/4" x 1 1/2" long julienne. Cut the asparagus into 1" long pieces. Place the butter in a 10" pan set on medium high heat. Add all of the vegetables and cook 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Re-heat the pastry shell in a 375 degree oven for 3 minutes then place at the top of a plate with vegatables. Laddle the lobster sauce on the front plate and set the scallops on top.
