Served this over angel hair pasta -very good. I recommend increasing the spices and sherry, though. I didn't think there was enough sauce.

This recipe was excellent! I added about a cup of mushrooms to the scallops while cooking and that created enough liquid to serve over linguine. The combination of the spices and wine gave this dish such a nice flavor. I will definitely prepare this again. Thanks! :)

Great recipe!!!!I had this with rice and it went along with the other recipes that I made. It was like a smorgasbord of scallops and shrimp at my house. Thank you so much!!!

MmmmmmmmMmmmmmmmm!!! Sooo Good!! We love scallops and this was a great way to serve them. Love the tarragon and oregano combination, a little different. I used sea scallops and cut them up, lemon is one of my favourite flavours and really made this recipe, of course the Sherry helped too, made a nice rich taste. This one will certainly be going in my hard copy, thanks for sharing.

Tried to post this earlier but there were bugs in the system--I loved this, Ellie! My fiance and I gobbled it up. I also loved the tarragon and oregano combo. The sherry was a nice added tinge of flavor--Served with a nice cold white wine. I added some cubed portabello mushrooms and a little more of the other ingredients (ok, I improvised) and it was fantastic. We will make this many times (when we can afford the scallops!) Thanks for sharing.

Due to a low fat diet, I had to improvise. I used bay scallops in this prep. Only had dried oregano and tarragon and Marsala. I soaked the dried herbs (Plus an couple dashes dried red peppers) and garlic,in about 3 tablespoons of Marsala in the saute pan then added a small can of mushrooms, the scallops and the juice of 1/2 lemon. I served this over pasta with Parmasean and steamed asparagus on the side. Everythings better with butter, but this was pretty good and guilt free. Don't forget the lemon.

We liked this a lot. I made it with bay scallops and dried herbs. The sauce reduced nicely and was good on the pasta I made which was a curly one (forgot the name). We like grated Parmesan cheese on top. Thanks for a nice easy and quick way to prepare scallops.

this turned out SO GOOD! I added some Alaska White Fish,too. And served on a bed of curvy wheat pasta and saute'd spinach. We will be having this again - and again - and again!
