Reviews for Scallops in Sage Cream for Two
"I love scallops so any recipe that stars this delicious shellfish is probably going to be a winner with mean. This was no different. I savored this yummy dish. We had it over fresh fettuccine noodles that I bought in the refrigerator section of my grocery store. Although my favorite way to have scallops is in a butter wine sauce with wilted spinach and balsamic reduction. I would eat this again, but probably won't be making it again. Only because I prefer my "go to" scallop recipe."
"AMAZING !! So quick and so very delish YUMO"
"I fully expected to love this, just by reading the ingredients. It was very good but not great. I place most of the blame for that on my husband, who accidentally bought bay scallops instead of sea scallops. :-( I will definitely try again using sea scallops, and might switch to a light cream rather than heavy next time ... the sauce did seem a bit heavy. Thanks for the recipe!iteach5 ... I assumed that 3 fresh sage meant 3 whole sage leaves."
"Easy and so much flavor! Definitely making this again, and soon! (just doubled for 4!)"
"Question: Does "3 fresh sage" mean 3 whole sage leaves?"
"Absolutely to die for recipe. I have made this several times and it is delicious. If you can afford it, get day boat scallops instead of all others - they will not shrink in size and are so worth the extra cost. Everyone who I have shared this recipe with says it is wonderful. As a matter of fact my husband and I had already decided to make this dish tonight and when I opened up my email I saw that TOH featured it again. GREAT RECIPE!!!"
"I love the way you think! The scallops are fantastic!"
"I've used this recipe since it first appeared in TOH. It's absolutely delicious and has become a family favoite. Occasionally I add a few mushrooms to the sauce."
"This was VERY good and easy. Thanks for the recipe!"
