      This was very rich and very delicious!!! I substituted a pound of frozen Argentine sea scallops, which were tiny but affordable (and delicious) at only $5.00 for a pound, compared with $15.00 a pound for the big fresh scallops. I used shallots for the onion. I think next time I'd cut back just a little bit on the lemon juice, to maybe 1 or 2 tsp, instead of a Tablespoon. I added a few jiggers of Brandy when the sauce was finished. I added a little grated swiss cheese with the breadcrumbs over the top, and piped whipped potatoes around the rim of the ramekin cups before browning under the broiler. My family just loved this recipe. Thanks so much. It tasted like something you'd get in an upscale restaurant! This is a "WOW" kind of recipe that is sure to impress your family or guests!

      This was wonderful, i lined a casserole dish with creamed potatoes, and filled it with this scallop mixture, topped it with breadcrumbs and parmesan before broiling. Served with a tossed green salad and french bread...heaven.

      Oh bless you my Goddess!!! As I move to Mexico I was looking for a reason to take the 2 dozen scallop shells in my blessed mother collection.... you have given me inspiration. I first had a recipe like this when I was in the 8th grade in a restaurant in Tiburon, CA.
