Reviews for Scallops in Sage Cream
"This was delicious! Normally, I am not a big fan of scallops, but these were great. I actually used bay instead of sea scallops, because they were MUCH cheaper, and if you just cook them a little less, the recipe still works. The light sauce accents the scallops perfectly!"
"I have made this several times. The whole family loves it! I love the ease of making this, fabulous dinner!"
"Good, didn't have any fresh sage, so used dried. Needed a little extra salt and pepper, but was good. Also used a tiny bit of butter in the sauce to make it a bit creamier."
"This was fantastic!!! I substituted onions for shallots & added garlic."
"Great. Definetly making this again"
