Scallops in Garlic Cream Sauce

Scallops in Garlic Cream Sauce created by Nif_H

I didn't really get this recipe from anyone, it's just (for as long as I can remember) one of the basic ways that I have always prepared scallops. It's easy, quick to prepare and the sauce really complements the scallops. I've prepared this with and without the wine (on those rare occasions when I happened to be out of my favorite white wine), and it is just as delicious either way. That's why I listed that ingredient as optional.

    I used seafood broth instead of. wine. I also added shrimp,crab,and cod along with the scallops. It was a little soupy so I did thicken it with some parmesan cheese however when my husband ate it the second night he ate it as a soup with crusty bread.

    We loved this recipe. I did sear the scallops first and doubled the sauce. Served over fresh pasta. Was a wonderful dinner!

    I had a mixture of shrimp and scallops that I used for this recipe. This would be great on rice or pasta, especially something like linguine. We enjoyed this with some fresh whole grain bread. Made for ZWT8. Thanks NorthwestGal! :)
