READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Alan Leonetti

I took a recipe for scallops with mushrooms from Emeril Lagase, and I added shrimp plus made a few other minor changes. This is the WONDERFUL recipe that I developed.

Great dish. I used chicory instead of frisee and I only had bay scallops so I just used those. I really liked the addition of balsamic. It added a whole new flavor dimension. Thank you.
