This was a simple dish to make and oh so good. I made recipe as is except I added about 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes to the oil before I put in the scallops, mushrooms, and garlic. Just for a little heat. More could probably added. Thanks for this recipe. You will be greatly missed on this site.

A very nice dish! Made as directed and it couldn't have been easier. Makes for a lovely presentation as well. I'll be making this again but next time will add a bit more sesame oil and a bit of red pepper flakes as other reviewers have done to jump up the flavour a bit.
RIP PapaD - I love making your food!

Excellent ! I made the recipe as directed except for increasing the sessame oil to 3 tsps. DH ate the leftovers before they ever got to the refrigerator.
