    Scallops are fantastic on the barbecue and work best with a very simple presentation which allows their natural flavours to really shine.

    This was just o.k. I've definately had scallops prepared in better ways. Will not make again.  -  29 Sep 2008


    These were pretty good. I probably wouldn't make them again because they taste much like pan fried scallops in butter, therefore there was too much work to get that simple taste.  -  29 Sep 2008


    My husband and I didn't care for this recipe at all. The marinade left a distinct aftertaste. Possibly too much lemon juice or onions. Not quite sure what could improve this. We will not try this again.  -  29 Sep 2008
