Step 1

Melt half of the butter in a medium frying pan , cook and turn the scallops for 4 minutes or until they are opaque and still soft and tender; transfer the scallops to a plate and set aside until the sauce is prepared.

Step 2

In the same frying pan melt the other half of the butter; as the butter melts add the cheese spread and mustard, whisk until smooth for about 2 minutes.

Step 3

Add the whipping cream; stir and bring to a boil, stir in the wine until combined and smooth, about 3 minutes.

Step 4

Return the cooked scallops to the pan, stir just until the scallops are warmed, about 2 minutes and then immediately remove the pan from the heat; do not overcook or the scallops will become rubbery.

Step 5

Place the scallops on three scallop shaped dishes or on small plates lined with lettuce. Sprinkle the crumbled blue cheese around the scallops; pour the cream sauce over the scallops. Slice the strawberries partly through leaving the green top to hold the slices together, Garnish with the sliced strawberry.
