Recipe by Phil Franco

I reviewed several scallop recipes and made this one my own.

Today was the last day of scallops season here in Eastern Maine and so we made this recipe. Absolutely fabulous! I was afraid that the cheese might make the sauce too heavy, but it was just the right balance of flavors (I think I may have added a little more parsley than called for, but that's me). I will definitely make this again next year!
