This is FANTASTIC ! Make it exactly as the recipe call for. You will make it again.

Rich and bold indeed. I liked overall recipe and ease of instructions. Myself, knowing me will tweek the dish to some degree of heat (likely habanero or jalapeno pesto based). I'm from the South...

Rich and decadent. I rarely cook scallops, but they were on special, and I was planning guests. They, we all, loved this. Served with roasted veggies and salad.

I thought it was delicious, but very rich. I made a very small amount and could only just get through it. I will certainly make it again. I also intend to try it with fish.
