Lovely flavour, we enjoyed them very much. I did have one problem, I got the scallops nicely browned, then as instructed added the wine and the lemon juice, as it bubbled up it took the coat off most of the scallops, next time I think I would remove the scallops before adding the wine and lemon juice, then quickly put them back. I had some prawns I need to use up, so I added them to coating; both scallops and prawns had a wonderful flavour. I will make them again. Thanks for sharing.
