This recipe is a little messed up, but I gave it five stars anyway because it is a great guide for flavors (the lemon is key!). I used the small bay scallops, but even if I had used the larger ones or shrimp they would have cooked faster than the broccoli. I took them out and added them directly to the vinaigrette for the broccoli ( and no, I don't feel the steps are out of order) and increased the vinaigrette (to taste) to accommodate the broccoli. I didn't have enough broccoli, so quickly added some stir fried veggies on hand. I also added a little butter, garlic and dill. The dill wasn't really necessary, but it all was really awesome. My husband loved it also, and it will be a keeper.
