Scallop Soup

Another soup recipe.  This one is quite different.  Don't be afraid to give it a try.

20 fresh scallops
1 leek, sliced
2 red pepper, diced
3 small sour apples, cored and cut into thick wedges
 4 T. thyme leaves
1 large white onion, finely chopped
32 oz. fish stock
6 oz. cream
Salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste
4 sprigs of fresh thyme for garnish

1.  Gently heat the butter in a pan and saute the onion until translucent.
Add the peppers and the leek and saute for a few minutes.
Add the fish stock and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer the soup over a low heat for 10 minutes.

2.  Add the apple wedges and cook for 5 minutes more.
Add the cream.
Add the thyme leaves and season with salt and pepper.

3. Simmer for a 2-3 minutes more, then add the scallops to the soup and cook for 3-4 minutes.

4. Garnish the soup with fresh thyme and serve.  Toasted garlic bread goes great with this dish.

Serves 4.
