    We liked this in our home. Tasty and a bit different in its serving. NICE TOUCH. The flavors were good but seemd to lack a kick. I am not sure what kick we missed, maybe more of the lemon or something to bring out the seperate flavors. I will make this again and enjoy it again. Very light on a hot night and simple to make after working a long day. I can see this as a versatile dish and with you rpermission plan to experiment a bit. Lovely dish. Good luck in rcs 10

    We liked this meal but didn't love it enough to warrant the cost of making it again. I did like the fact that it's a nice healthy and light dinner. I would suggest seasoning the shrimp and scallops with salt and pepper. The sauce never caramelized and I didn't want to overcook the seafood. It left a lot of liquid at the bottom of the pan. The salad dressing was awesome..5 stars for that! Thanks for an innovative idea. *Made for RSC 10 contest*
