      The flavor of this dish is wonderful. I served it over pasta and would not hesitate to serve it to guests. I love scallops and this is the simplest and most dilicious dish I have found using them, nice change from seared, etc. I have to ask if you are a professional photographer? Your food photography is amazing. I can pick your pics out of a crowd.
