I did turn this into Garlic Prawns as I couldn't find any decent scallops. Easy and great-tasting. I served this over linguine rather than rice. I have been asked to make this again - so it goes into the 'keeper' file.

I did start out to make this a scallop dish, but after seeing that it worked with prawns... that is what I decided to do. Green prawns are always a standby in my freezer! I made this outstanding recipe for Mother's Day& served it over rice. For such a quick and easy dish to prepare the result was amazing! Many thanks for sharing this recipe.

Very nice scallop dish, I loved the taste it was very delicious. Easy to prepare. The only change I made was I add prawns. Served with Turkish Bread. Thank you Latchy. RIP
