"This is a great and easy recipe.I used this recipe when i misplaced skewers that I'd planned to use to grill the scallops.The dish turned out even better than i figured it would. I used a splash of Hennessey instead of white wine for the sauce. Thanks again for posting such an excellent recipe!"

You omitted telling us to check scallops for the fibrous attachment on the side of the scallop, and be very careful with the temperature when cooking the scallops, or you can over brown the solids in the butter and get a bitter taste. I finally ended up cooking the scallops in EVOO and adding butter after I removed the scallops and then I could get the desired shade from the butter solids before adding the wine, to deglaze the pan. It’s a lot easier on the blood pressure!

Wonderful dinner for husband and me! I made mushroom risotto instead of rice.

i tried using panko instead of crumbs. they didnt stick, and then burned in the pan, which spoiled the sauce. next time id add an egg wash, and a bit of garlic and say sauce.
