Made this when it first appeared in CL. Wonderful flavor and so easy! Whenever we have scallops this is one of the recipe I reach for -- the other is CL Grilled Sweet and Sour Scallops.

I'm not sure what all the fuss is about concerning the recipe. I made it exactly as stated, except for a few more chipotles, and it was edible. The scallops were nicely cooked. Unfortunately, the sauce was lacking. With all the great CL scallop recipes, i would not reach for this one again.

So delicious and simple! We doubled the sauce recipe and grilled the scallops. I also sprinkled with smoked paprika for a deeper, richer flavor. Served with Poblano-Potato Gratin and Southwestern Salad with Avocado-Lime Dressing.

The sauce was over-powering. This would have gone in the trash, however it was late and we were hungry. I like spicy, however this was beyond my taste liking. My wife did not like it either. Made as recipe reads, except used bay scallops and adjusted the cooking time.

Made this recipe a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately, I could not find the canned chipotle chili in adobo sauce in my local grocery store. I substituted Montgomery Inn barbecue sauce, our favorite, to get the smoky flavor the the chipotle would have. My family loved this. Afterr 19 years of marriage, my husband said that this was probably the best meal I have ever made (and I'm not a bad cook). This definitely worth making and a keeper for the recipe box for sure!

Really enjoyed this dish. The orange brought a bright flavor and the chipotle added some nice heat, but wasn't overpowering (I believe the butter mellows it out a bit). Might dice green onions more thinly next time and toss them in with the sauce to better incorporate them. Served over angel hair pasta.
