Be sure to pat the scallops with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture. This helps create that perfectly browned and flavorful scallop your better half will love. —April Lane, Greeneville, Tennessee

Delicious and so easy to make.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2012

I made this last night for my boyfriend and I along with the Shiitake & Butternut Risotto. I'm not a big fan of sea food and I thought it was delicious. Next time I will probably tone down the lemon because I'm not a big fan. Otherwise Perfect.
