      This is the first time I've used food.com. Made lots of homemade pesto this summer and wanted to use to make a scallop appetizer to bring for Ch. eve. Found this recipe - it was wonderful! I added a little whole milk (had no cream) and lots of parmesan cheese to the pesto - heated in the micro and placed a spoonful in each serving dish. Sauted lots of garlic in oil and added the scallops for 2 1/2 minutes. Added salt, pepper and paprika. Placed the scallops on the pesto. Delicious! (I used frozen scallops from Costco - defrosted and dried well with a paper towel before frying).

      Was unable to find sea scallops so used medium size shrimp. It made a great appetizer, however we felt they were lacking something, so sprinkled on grated Parmesan. Next time will saute with garlic or maybe a shallot and add the cheese with the cream. Thanks for sharing.

      I used a tomato pesto for this and a mixture of scallops and shrimp. It was really nice but I agree that the scallops need some seasoning. Sauteing them with fresh garlic and onions would probably be best but I used a good amount of sea salt and freshly ground pepper after they were cooked. Very nice on some hot pasta! Made for PRMR. Thanks duonyte! :)

      Noticed after I'd made the recipe that a number of others included some garlic, as did I, & these scallops made for a very tasty addition to the various appetizers I had out for one of the monthly groups I host! Thanks so much for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      This was very good! I made it as written but added 1 tsp of minced garlic. It was so quick and easy to do but tasted like I did something fancy. Thanks duonyte! Made for 123 tag.

      I used bay scallops, because that is what I could find fresh today. Therefore, I only cooked them about 2 minutes instead of 4 minutes. This is a wonderful appetizer, but I think it would also be great served over angel hair pasta as a main dish with a salad. Thanks so much for posting this simple and delicious recipe. Made for Newest Zaar Tag!
