Roasted Sea Scallops

"We like scallops because of their availability here year-round, and they're affordable compared to some seafood," notes Marguerite Shaeffer of Sewell, New Jersey. "These scallops are delicately seasoned with roasted tomatoes and can be served over rice or toasted garlic bread."

    My family did not like this recipe. They are not big fans of tomato and tomato over powers the dish. The best way to cook scallops is in the skillet with butter and salt n pepper!

    My husband and I were disappointed with this recipe.... very little flavor. And the combination of tomatoes and scallops roasting made a large amount of broth that watered down the flavor. I served it over rice, but there was way too much watery broth. If I were to try something like this again, I would add more herbs, and I would drain off the broth. We love scallops, but this recipe did not complement their flavor well. Will not make again.
