As the song goes "Simply the Best". This was terrific. Certainly easy to do and great tasting. Only thing I'd do differently is to make a bit more of the wine/marmalade sauce. A bit of tabasco would be ok as well. But what a great dish!! Thanks Latchy.

I can't believe how easy these scallops were to prepare and the amazing final result. My husband loved these and asked to have them again tomorrow. He raved over the sauce & hates marmalade jam. I did make extra sauce. This was a restaurant quality dish. Thanks for the recipe

Scallops and marmalade made such a great combination! I prepared as directed and then popped the scallops back in the lower half of the shell and toppped with the sauce and fresh herbs which made for great presentation as well.
