      We loved this! I had very large divers' scallops so cut them in half and seared them for less time. Followed directions right up till the cheese--my guest and I tasted and decided it was lovely and rich without it. I tried it a second time, dusting the scallops with paprika before searing--it added a little bite and a bit of color. Excellent, Dawnab!

      Very nice blend of flavors and easy to prepare. For the vermouth, I combined white grape juice and white wine vinegar. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Oh so good! I had never made scallops before but always loved them in restaurants. I did use white wine instead of the vermouth, used Jarlsberg cheese and added more mushrooms than the recipe called for because I love mushrooms. The taste was gorgeous! Instead of this being a starter it was my main dish. Hubby even had some and really liked it. I served it over a bed of steamed buttered kale with garlic and lemon. I know I’ll make this again! Thank you for posting Dawnab.
