    NorthwestGal's Note:

    I didn't really get this recipe from anyone, it's just (for as long as I can remember) one of the basic ways that I have always prepared scallops. It's easy, quick to prepare and the sauce really complements the scallops. I've prepared this with and without the wine (on those rare occasions when I happened to be out of my favorite white wine), and it is just as delicious either way. That's why I listed that ingredient as optional.

      We loved this recipe. I did sear the scallops first and doubled the sauce. Served over fresh pasta. Was a wonderful dinner!

      I had a mixture of shrimp and scallops that I used for this recipe. This would be great on rice or pasta, especially something like linguine. We enjoyed this with some fresh whole grain bread. Made for ZWT8. Thanks NorthwestGal! :)

      This is just outstanding. The sauce is so full of flavor and creamy. It was delicious with some crusty bread and a salad. Made for ZWT8 for the Diners, Winers and Chives team.
