I made this up when I wanted to use scallops but I didn't want a ton of fat. When I served it the other day, my husband said, "Let's just have this and forget the main course." Now, coming from him, a big meat and potatoes fan, I thought that was quite a compliment. I used the little bay scallops, just the frozen ones from the supermarket. Those are the only ones we can get without taking out a second mortgage! I imagine it would be good with the large ones as well. If you have scallop shells, that is a great way to do the individual servings, but you could use any little oven-proof dishes or you could make it as one larger dish.
