“I found this recipe in a magazine over 10 years ago. Since that day, I have served this dish to many scallop lovers - not one has been disappointed yet. Key is NOT to overcook the scallops. They cook VERY quickly. I like very flavorful dishes - usually double this sauce and serve the dish with couscous.”
