Shrimp or Scallops in Garlic Butter created by love4culinary

This dish is really quick, and easy to prepare, but its filled with terrific, rich flavor. I've made it with both the shrimp and the scallops, and both worked very well.

    I used very large sea scallops, roasted garlic and Harvey's Bristol Cream Sherry. I cooked the scallops for 7 minutes per side and they turned out great. The sauce was very good, not over powering and it complimented the scallops perfectly. We enjoyed this dish, thanks very much for sharing Kozmic Blues.

    I prepared this with small bay scallops tonight and love it. The sauce is simple, but flavorful. We had some pasta tossed with zucchini, red pepper and onion in a light cream sauce, a fresh salad, and garlic bread as sides. Mmmm. Wonderful decadence. Thanks.

    Yum! I made this with shrimp and the sauce had a wonderful garlicky taste that didn't overpower them. I made no changes to the recipe except for adding cracked black pepper before serving.

    This tasted good but I gave it 3 stars because the sauce turned a greyish color on me when I added the wine. So it wasn't a real pretty dish to serve but the taste was good.
