I really enjoyed this but DH really didn't care for it. I think he didn't like the brown rice and I guess he's not crazy about scallops. I do agree that the lemon, capers and red pepper flakes are a must. Thanks for posting.

Excellent! The lemon zest, red pepper flakes, and capers are a must! My family loved it--it had a real zing to an otherwise bland seafood. I would make it again for my family and friends.
