"This was super easy and overall wasn't bad...it was just not how I'd like my scallops; I increased all the ingredients because I had a feeling it may be a bit bland and even after increasing the ingredients it was just not super flavorful. I'm glad I tried it--it showed me that other recipes I've made really are that good and worth a little bit more time they might take to prepare."

"Turned out wonderful! Just like a restaurant-style dish. The microwave is great for cooking scallops."

"I'm getting ready to make this again for supper. It was soo easy and delicious. I served this over no-yolk egg noodles. This time I am also going to saute some zucchini w/ sesame seeds as a side dish."
