We thought this was bland. I'm not sure how to punch it up. Maybe add more garlic or some cayenne pepper???

Scrumptious! Instead of cooking the way recommended I used some scallops in their shell and cooked over a BBQ grill and prepared the sauce on the side using the wok burner. I poured the sauce into the shells at the end. Very quick and tasty! I used some green peppers which was all I had, so my photo might not look all that pretty but it sure tasted great!

Ahhh, MizzNezz.....!!! This recipe was fabulous. DH is eating more seafood, and is especially fond of scallops. I made this recipe just for him, using 5 medium sea scallops. I used 1Tbsp. butter and 1 Tbsp. olive oil for sautéing. I didn't have regular onions, so substituted green onion. You know, it looked really lovely with the red pepper, and dh said it tasted like a 5* restaurant. The sauce was nice and smooth, and complimented the scallops. Thanks for posting another tried & true recipe. :-)
