Recipe by Manami
A touch of cream gives this slightly tangy sauce a silky-smooth finish. Be sure to serve this dish with yummy-crust hot bread so you can sop up every drop of sauce. Found this in Cooking Light, January of 2003 but have not tried it yet.

After I discovered my husband didn't like scallops, I replaced them with some shrimp and crab meat and it was still fabulous. I had to double the serving size since my Father and Daughter joined us for dinner and they couldn't stop raving about it. I'm not a great cook, so that was a huge ego boost! My husband is diabetic and this recipe did not adversely affect his sugar levels.
