    A delicious easy recipe, I prepared this as an appetizer. I used 6 large sea scallops and cut them into quarters. Great tasting sauce!

      This was delicious! The sauce was very wonderful and the scallops tender and juicy. I served this with Roasted Asparagus with Garlic and Fresh Thyme #120838. The presentation looked and tasted like you were eating in a five star restaurant. I would highly recommend both of these recipes.
