Delicious! I used fresh gulf shrimp instead of scallops and garlic instead of green onion, cause that's what I had available. It turned out great. Thank you.
These are fantastic! I've never tried scallops that were anywhere similar. Now I wonder why...full of flavor, easy to make. Terrific. Thanks for sharing!
