      I feel very honored that Chachi posted this recipe especially for me! Sometimes "simple" is THE best. This was perfect. There was nothing in the recipe to destract from the taste of the sweet scallops I used. The next time I find some really large prawns, I think I'll prepare them the same way. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
