“We love our seafood but fresh scallops in the shell are a luxury item for us here but well maybe when we can afford I think this recipe will be delicious. This is meant for what we call an entree (1st course in a menu followed by main and dessert) but have listed as an appertizer. Allow 15 minutes cooling time (I have not in the timings). The recipe is from Australian BH&G Diabetic Living.”
