Cshores says "I made this for my husband's birthday, and it was a hit. We both ooohed and aaahed through out dinner."

Esmee says "This is a great recipe if you are having guests over for dinner. Easy to make, impressive to serve. I split the sauce in half -- the first half I kept as a finely diced salsa, the second half I pureed in a blender to make more of a sauce. I presented the scallops by first making a small pool of sauce, layering the scallops on top, and then finally garnishing the scallops with the salsa. It looked nice and added some nice flavor to the scallops (which I choose not to coat with flour before frying)."
