Curry powder and smoky piment d’Espelette, a mild, complex chile powder made with a pepper grown in the Basque region of France, contribute a warming kick to this custardy terrine.

  1. Kosher salt, to taste
    1 medium carrot, cut into ½″ pieces
    1 medium leek, white and light green parts only, halved and sliced ½″ thick crosswise
    1 cup heavy cream
    ½ cup flour
    1 tbsp. minced chives
    1 tbsp. minced dill
    2 tsp. minced parsley
    1 tsp. piment d’Espelette
    ½ tsp. curry powder
    6 eggs
    Zest of 1 lemon, plus 2 tsp. juice
    8 large sea scallops, cut into ½″ pieces
    Unsalted butter, for greasing
    Lettuce leaves and tomato rosettes, for garnish (optional)

Method :

1. Bring a 4-qt. saucepan of salted water to a boil. Cook carrot and leek until soft, 3–5 minutes; transfer to an ice bath until cold, then drain and set aside. Whisk cream, flour, chives, dill, parsley, piment d’Espelette, curry powder, eggs, lemon zest and juice, and salt in a bowl until smooth. Fold in reserved carrot and leek, and the scallops; set aside.

2. Heat oven to 375°. Grease a 1 ½-qt. terrine mold or loaf pan with butter and line with parchment paper, leaving 4″ hanging over edges. Spread scallop mixture into prepared mold; place in a roasting pan. Pour boiling water into pan to reach halfway up sides of terrine; bake until top is golden brown and filling is firm, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool in roasting pan; remove and chill, uncovered, until cold, about 30 minutes. Holding edges of parchment paper, lift terrine out of mold and transfer to a serving platter. Cut crosswise into 1″-thick slices; garnish with lettuce leaves and tomato rosettes, if you like.
