    This recipe was just not for me. I like all the ingredients cabbage, leeks and scallops but it just seemed very bland for my liking.

    Delicious! I was looking for a unique scallop recipe and had some cabbage to use up so this was perfect. I also added some garlic to the cabbage and leeks as we love garlic. I served this over some white rice boiled with equal parts chicken broth. Turned out fantastic! Thank you.

    This is one of our favorites. It's hard to believe it is soooo good with so few ingredients. Kind of a strange combination too, but oh so good. This probably serves 4 normal people, but my DH and I split this and wished there was more!

    This is a delicious scallop dish that makes a beautiful presentation! The only change I made is that I used butter in place of olive oil, and I added some minced garlic. I cooked my cabbage a bit longer to make it a bit softer. Thanx for sharing this fabulous recipe. I'll make this again for sure.

    I'm so impressed with this simple meal. I loved it! This was my first attempt at leeks (they're so simple, but always seemed exotic and potentially difficult) and I'll be making this again. I doubled the amount of scallops because, well, you can never have too many scallops! Thanks a bunch for this recipe!
