Without really adding sauce or herbs to scallops they can taste rather boring. To liven up the taste try this recipe for a sweet and tangy taste.

  • I tried this recipe, minus the peppers, with scallops skewers and chicken skewers. The sauce smelled wonderful, I used a Reisling wine because it's what I had. The recipe tasted better with the scallops than the chicken but both were good.
