      This is simple and good. Also, important to note I already had the ingredients on hand. I used scallops instead and it was just as delicious. Thank you.

      I put a lid on for about 6 minutes after I turned off the stove to help thicken it. I also added a about a tablespoon of flour.

      I was really surprised at how great this came out! It was fantastic. I added some garlic powder to flavor it up a bit!
