Scallops have a delicate, meaty taste that doesn't need a lot of help, but this light sauce accentuates their flavor without drowning it out.

  • The directions say combine water, wine, juice, butter, honey with peppers. "peppers" are not listed in the ingredient list. Is this a typo, or is something left out of the list?
