      I was a goof and totally didnt realise that this recipe calls for grilling....lol duh! so I ended up making some of my own changes and doing everything on the stove top. Over all everything was great! Taste was bold and not too spicy. Could definatly be more spicy for those who enjoy that. I made a few changes to accomodate my mistake. I used 2lbs of small scallops, 1 can of low-sodium diced tomatoes, and linguini. It still turned out amazing!
