We Had this for dinner tonight, minus the onions (I can't digest them), and it was wonderful. Restaurant quality. You will not be disappointed.

The entire family from the oldest (65 yrs) to the youngest (16 months) loved this recipe. I had to use bay scallops but it was still delicious.

Loved this recipe, great for a quick summer dish. I substituted cajun seasoning for the seafood seasoning to give it a bit more zip.

This is an awesome dish, we are going to try substituting the scallopes for crawfish the next time we make it. We also want to try it with shrimp. Hats off to to the Chef!!
