Yummy yummy yummy... If not a wee bit basic. I used regular old salt-filled ingreds, and it was a hit with the fam. Good stuff!
Delicious & healthy--how can you lose!! Didn't want to pay the price for shallots so I used the white of green onions. Also used the diced canned tomatoes and sauteed some fresh mushrooms as suggested by others. Fantastic Mille, thanks for sharing!
This recipe was very tasty, and very simple to make. The only thing I do is add a little bit of corn starch to the scallop mixture to make it a bit creamier.
