      I've never cooked scallops with balsamic vinegar before, but it was a very nice touch! I did adjust the recipe a bit to make it more flavorful and colorful based on previous comments. Here's what I did: 1. Added approx 1/3 cup of Sun Dried Tomatoes 2. Added a third clove of garlic 3. Mixed fresh basil in after I pulled the scallops from the heat. I cook quite a bit with basil and I find that the flavor gets pulled out of it the longer it cooks. I prefer it not cooked at all. All this over a bed of angel hair pasta and it was PERFECT! I will definitely make again.

      I did use dried basil as that's all I had on hand but it looked rather colorless so I threw in a cup of frozen peas.

      It was good but I couldn't really taste the basil, even that I used fresh. I will try it next time with dried basil and see if the flavour comes through more.
