I hope you have tried this by now it is super! I cut the recipe in half - worked. I also cut back on the oil and a bit on the wasabi I didn't want the wasabi to overpower the prawns. Definately use the parmesan. Next time I will use 2% milk and cut back on the butter just for the sake of a few calories. Delicious as usual Dorothy Thanks

Excellent! This is a keeper and plan to make it again. I liked using some ingredients that I never used before, but liked them in this recipe so much that I will definitely use them again. I followed Bergy's suggestion to use 2% milk instead of cream and forgot to add the chives.

I thought this sounded so good that I made it despite not having either the ginger or the fettuccine on hand. Otherwise I followed the recipe and served the scallops over rice along with the sauce. It was Excellent!!! And so Easy!!! The lime, wasabi and parmesean is a wonderful combination. I would urge everyone to try this. For those that don't like scallops, I am sure it would work equally as well with shrimp. Definitely a keeper. Thanks!
