    KateL's Note:

    Entered for safe-keeping. From Simply Classic by Jr League of Seattle. Elegant. Northwest U.S. cuisine. May use either fresh red bell peppers, roasted, or canned roasted red peppers. Note: reviews recommended use of reduced sodium chicken broth in lieu of regular chicken stock as the sauce seemed too salty. Likewise, I would also use unsalted butter. I normally substitute the reduced sodium ingredients while cooking anyway out of force of habit.

      Very impressive. I made this for our 4th of July BBQ dinner and we loved it. I also found the sauce just a tad salty, so will use low sodium broth next time as well. Thank you.

      This was a very tasty dish, I liked the contrast of the savoriness of the red pepper sauce and the sweetness of the scallops. The only change I would make would be to use low sodium chicken broth as the pepper sauce was a bit too salty for my taste. I reduced the recipe to one serving and pan grilled my scallops. Made for PRMRT.
