DH and I had fantastically fresh scallops and shrimp. Since we'd eaten them plain the night prior, we wanted a pasta dish that would accent (rather than overpower) great seafood. This was perfect! To cut down of calories, I subbed the olive oil with butter and skipped adding it to the sauce later. *Make Sure* you have a light crusty bread to soak up the sauce. It's a very delicate sauce worth scooping from the bottom of your pasta bowl!

This is excellent!! I used Bay scallops instead of sea so I didn't need to cut them. I also used to more cloves of garlic because we love garlic in this house. I did serve it over linguini. Delicious and easy to make. Thanks lucy k.

Great Dish! Thanks for the recipe and the reviews! Made the dish as a surprise and it delivered! To thicken the sauce, I seasoned about 3 tablespoons of flour with old bay and pepper and in a separate bowl, mixed the flour with scampi Sauce after step 7. ( I used 1/4 cup of the cooked sauce to create to create a rue). I added the rue with the butter, lemon juice and cooked for an additional 3 minutes. It came out great! This is a must keep recipe! Really enjoyed it! BTW, I also used more garlic and used Bay scallops and added parmesan cheese to the sauce. Great taste! Thanks again
