I loved this dish and so did my friend, who I was sharing it with. I used regular scallops instead of the bay and just quartered them (I like the taste much better than the bay), and I used medium size shrimp. I made it with just the broccoli, because it's what I had on hand. I used a combination of Fontina, Asiago and Parmesan cheese instead of the Cheddar, and it was delicious, creamy and tasty! Thank you for sharing this recipe with us Shelby Jo! It was truly enjoyed! Made for Gimme 5 Stars Tag Game 1/09 Linda
I made it exactly as posted. I really questioned using all cheddar cheese, but wanted to follow the original recipe. My son liked this, but asked for no vegetables to be included. I added vegetables to mine, but just didn't enjoy this with the cheddar cheese. I guess I am a more scampi sauce person when it comes to seafood. But since my son ate it, I gave it 4 stars!Made for Football Tag 2008!
This was really good. I used all shrimp and only broccoli cause that's what I had on hand. Even the little one liked it which is always a plus.
