    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    This dish is really quick, and easy to prepare, but its filled with terrific, rich flavor. I've made it with both the shrimp and the scallops, and both worked very well.

      Yum! I made this with shrimp and the sauce had a wonderful garlicky taste that didn't overpower them. I made no changes to the recipe except for adding cracked black pepper before serving.

      This tasted good but I gave it 3 stars because the sauce turned a greyish color on me when I added the wine. So it wasn't a real pretty dish to serve but the taste was good.

      Simple, but simply delicious. This recipe really pleased my senses :) I doubled the "sauce" ingredients and also added a bit of red pepper flakes when I added the seafood, and it made for a nice addition... other than that, I did everything as stated in the recipe. I used scallops and shrimp, adding the scallops just a couple mins earlier so they would be done at the same time. The sherry adds such depth to this recipe. We thoroughly enjoyed this! Served over very fine pasta. Thanks for the recipe! definitely a keeper! :)
