Great recipe! We had plenty of leftovers so I served it with marinara sauce over pasta the second time around.

We enjoyed these shrimp and scallops! but we did find the sauce a little too sharp, I think the combination of dry wine and the lemon juice was a little overwhelming. If i were to make it again I would either cut one of them out or cut both in half. I will try it again and next time will serve it over brown rice. thanks for posting.
