Easy and great tasting! Made for family company and even the kids ate them!
Fabulous, and so easy. Served with rice.
We loved this recipe-was quick, easy, and delicious! Substituted panko for the dry bread crumbs.
A very tasty presentation for scallops, I served it over rice.
I was really disappointed with this recipe! My scallops were almost totally raw, even though I followed the timing in the recipe! My husband, sons, and I all said "blech!" Actually, I cooked them longer than the recipe called for, and I don't usually like to cut into things to see if they're done, although obviously I should have this time. Also, using the same skillet for the sauce that the scallops were cooked in ensures that burnt bread crumbs get mixed in and make it unappetizing looking. How did this recipe get to be a contest winner?
