Scallops Provencale

"This is based on a recipe from the cookbook that came with my KitchenAid mixer. The introduction states, "Fresh scallops and mushrooms simmered in a light but spicy tomato sauce," and "When selecting scallops, choose ones that are translucent and shiny in appearance and have a sweetish aroma." Serve with hot cooked rice or a loaf of crusty bread."

    Incredibly simple and foolproof. The ingredients are common; the prep is simple. The taste is quite sophisticated Don't hesitate serving this to your family or guests. My wife and I loved it. We paired this with a malbec from Argentina for a great meal.

    I love scallops, and this light-tasting sauce really lets the flavor of the scallops shine. I made exactly per the directions, and served over angel hair pasta. Very enjoyable dish.

    This was a wonderful dish. Not only did it taste good, but it made my kitchen smell delectable. I will make it again and again. You can use any type fish or even chicken. I loved it.

    I made this recipe as directed except I cut the recipe in half to serve 2. Definitely needs salt and pepper to taste at the end. I thought the flavor was the best after the dish had cooled down some. I would serve this with good Italian bread to sop up the juices.

    An excellent dish! A restaurant quality, light, flavorful dish that is pretty easy to make. I subbed white wine for red and it worked great. I served this over angel hair pasta and will definitely make this again.
