Really good flavor. Loved the subtle ginger flavor. I would have given it a 5 star rating but your recipe directions are not very clear. It states cook time is 20 m (I assume that means minutes) but in the written directions it says to heat until starting to sizzle; cook for 15 seconds and then remove from heat. Where's the 20 minutes of cooking? I used shrimp instead of scallops and after tossing the final ingrediants I put it all back on the heat for about 10 minutes. Really good!! Read More
