Clean the scallops and cut in half, then simmer in the milk for 15
minutes. Strain, reserving the liquid. Heat 1 tablespoon of the butter

transfer to an ovenproof dish and cover with mashed potatoes, making sure
they cover the fish right to the edges. Dot with the remaining butter and
bake in a moderate oven, 350F, for 20-30 minutes, or until the top is
turning brown.
