I love making these appetizers at Christmas time. Always well received!! I'm guessing on the servings, depends on the size of the scallops.

Made this last nite and was very good. I did not put a couple of the scallops in the sauce so I could compare the difference in taste and texture. The ones in the sauce was very good but I think my own personal preference was the 2 without the sauce. Also I used sea scallops and they took almost 7 minutes per side. Thanks for the recipe.
