    Vino Girl's Note:

    This is a perfect light dish for spring or summer. I used bay scallops and reduced the cooking time to 2 minutes per side. An easy way to season the scallops is to put them in a plastic bag along with the coating mixture, and just shake the bag a few times. If you need the Old Bay, DiB's Old Bay Seasoning #2 is good. This recipe's source is McCormick.

      I made this recipe as is the first time and it was fantastic. The second time I made it, I added some Panko that I had ground to a powder, some grated parmesan and some turmeric to the flower/Old Bay mixture. I also used bay scallops and some tiger shrimp. PERFECT! This is so yummy. I absolutely love the sauce. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe.

      I'd like to point out its wrong to go lower for cooking wines, keep quality as high as possible. And the keyword is evaporation, dont boil, because you can slightly caramelize the sugars in the wine, that can lead to bitterness, very low boil, steaming for enthusiasts is suggested.
