      This dish was incredible. It was our first time trying champagne grapes and they are SO good. I don't think this recipe would be nearly as good with regular grapes. I loved this so much! Thank you for posting it!!

      Champagne grapes are the greatest - and super tasty in this sauce with the shallots. This is very quick to make and definitely impressive. Next time I'll start off with the pan on higher heat - and without the butter - to get a better sear on the scallops.

      Want to impress your guests??? Then this is the dish for you. The scallops turned out tender and succulent. The grapes are a perfect addition to the scallops and the almond added a nice crunch. Awesome dish, you won't be sorry you tried this recipe. Thanks for sharing, Sandrasothere.
