Gato said he LOVES IT, so it's clearly 4 star worthy! Unlike most folks, I like my scallops well cooked and therefore left them 4 min on each side. (Hence the darker color in the photo!) We used Recipe #210251 (+ 1t DILL relish) as the base, and used 3 chipotles in adobo. CAUTION: We like HOT, so this may not work for everyone! Made for PAC Fall 07 -- Thanks, Michelle! This is a winner for sure!
