Oh my goodness, is this good. I had 1 pound of scallops and 1 pound shrimp that were slated for chowder, but we just weren't in a chowder mood. So this was the perfect recipe for them! Made exactly as stated, but I used 5-6 cloves garlic, what can I say? lol, love that garlic! We also added a couple tbsp butter to the finished sauce. Then I threw the cooked seafood back in to toss with the sauce, and then spooned them over the pasta. Served over thin linguine. Cher, this was fabulous! Thank you!

This was great, I added just a touch more wine and tiny bit more butter and little less lemon and it was fantastic - I cooked the sauce down just a bit (dont forget to drain your scallops after searing or the sauce will be bitter.) and tossed with angel hair pasta - GREAT - easy recipe. Thanks for sharing!

I served this over angel hair pasta and it was wonderful. I made this as is and had just the right amount of sauce.
