Scallops with Red Pepper Sauce

When scallop season is open here in Nova Scotia, I use scallops fresh from the ocean. This dish is quick and easy yet tastes delicious.

    Was very good but next time I would add a homemade Parmesan sauce over everything instead of just grated Parmesan cheese, I also used roasted red peppers instead of the ones called for and added some onion!
