This went directly into the recipe book. Excellent and super easy. Maybe not as impressive as the hour and a half version, but darn close. A winner for sure. (Using dried minced onions with no slicing of scallions — or any slicing/chopping, for that matter — was a nice relief.)

this is fabulous! I used more scallops than recipie called for, which I think improved the recipe. Love it!
