Scallops With Lemon & Capers

READY IN: 16mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

This is so quick to make, with a lot of flavor. I only made half the scallops (to serve two) but kept the sauce amount the same so it could also go over steamed asparagus and rice. I suggest skipping the salt - the capers and chicken broth are salty enough. From Woman's Day 3/6/07

This recipe was fabulous! The sauce is light, just enough flavor to enhance the scallops, yet not overwhelm. I made this with arborio rice...the sauce drizzled over the rice was great too. I highly recommend it, and will make again.
I did not add the salt as recommended by the author. The capers and chicken broth were sufficient in providing enough flavor.
