Coquille St Jacques

Back in my Detroit days I worked for Superior Fish for a few years.  One of my first deliveries most days was to the Golden Mushroom in Southfield.  If memory serves me correctly (I hide my own Easter eggs so let’s go from there. They had Coquille st Jacques in the menu and I got to try it a couple of time.  Here is my take on this classic.
