I saw this Ming Tai scallop recipe prepared on the Today show and I just had to try it. The pan seared scallops were definitely flavorful. These scallops were prepared for a dinner with great results.

I had to exchange the wine and chicken stock for water and additional herbs. Likewise, I had to switch olive oil in place of butter.

It still worked out okay.
