  1. ***MADE FOR THE "PAPA D" COOKATHON - In Memory***<br/>This was a simple dish to make and oh so good. I made recipe as is except I added about 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes to the oil before I put in the scallops, mushrooms, and garlic. Just for a little heat. More could probably added. Thanks for this recipe. You will be greatly missed on this site.
  2. A very nice dish! Made as directed and it couldn't have been easier. Makes for a lovely presentation as well. I'll be making this again but next time will add a bit more sesame oil and a bit of red pepper flakes as other reviewers have done to jump up the flavour a bit.<br/>RIP PapaD - I love making your food!
  3. Excellent ! I made the recipe as directed except for increasing the sessame oil to 3 tsps. DH ate the leftovers before they ever got to the refrigerator.
  4. Tasty, quick and easy stir fry recipe! I left out the scallions, otherwise made as directed. I liked that the sauce was not overpowering, allowing the scallop and asparagus flavors to shine through. Served on a bed of couscous and really enjoyed - I'm glad you shared the recipe! Made in memory of PapaD, June 2012

I have enjoyed cooking for as long as I can remember. Thanks to everyone that has tried and reviewed my recipes :>) My review guidelines are as follows: 5 stars - Wonderful ! Perfect as posted and plan to make this recipe again! 4 stars - Liked it a lot and will make again but will probably alter the recipe slightly. 3 stars - OK but to make it again would require major changes to the original recipe to suit my tastes. 2 stars - Really didn't like it. Could be personal preference or the recipe just didn't meet expectations. <embed src="" width="150" height="150" wmode="transparent" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a> <embed src="" quality="high" bgcolor="#372060" width="400" height="213" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> Adopted by: <a href="">TeresaS's</a> With <a href="">Lumpia (In Spring Roll Wrappers)</a> Recipe#341002 <a href="">Smoked Ribs on the Grill</a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> Adopted by: Chef #194886 With:Recipe #317515 Recipe #317753 Recipe #250644 <img src=""> My themes, Asian and breakfast.
