    Oolala's Note:

    From a newspaper clipping from Cooking for Jack (Nicholson, the actor) by Tommy Baratta,1996. The blurb before the recipe says "you have to like the tart taste of lime and the pungent flavor of cilantro to enjoy this dish. It's very quick and easy to make."

      I recommend just sauteing the scallops until they are done and not poaching them. Poaching them sucked the flavor out of the scallops and made them tough. The sauce is good, though.

      Yummy! I used bay scallops and served this over linguini. Takes no time at all to put together and is very tasty. :)
