    This was absolutely one of the best recipes I have tried in a while...the flavor was out of this world This is something that you easily could serve for a small dinner party I made as directed and the white wine I used was a Sauvignon Blanc and I roasted asparagus in the oven to go with....the sauce was spectacular and DH who is not a big fan either asparagus or scallops licked the plate clean

    Lovely flavors and easy to make. Served with rice and a salad, but asparagus would go nicely also. Yummy enough for a dinner party.

    Restaurant quality! Sharp,clean flavors. This was my first time making a beurre blanc sauce and it came out perfect. I used red snapper instead of scallop since that was what i had on hand. Pairs well with vegetables too - i dipped a steamed asparagus into extra sauce.

    Don't get me wrong this recipe was good but way too lemony to the point of bitter. May have been my fault since I used regular lemons, Meyers were not available. Just to prevent others from making my mistakes, I also used Vidalia onion instead of shallots, and garlic butter because that's what I had on hand. I had to add more sugar to final product to tone down the lemon. I served this with CL grilled asparagus. I most likely would not bother to make this recipe again.

    Good flavor. The sauce tasted very very sour alone, but when paired with the scallops it was a nice dish. Very easy to prepare, not too time consuming. Next time I will pair it with asparagus- what a good idea!

    Fabulous recipe, made this with my husband, we both agree the sauce pops, it was crisp, flavorful and exciting! We served it with black forbidden rice and sautéed baby kale. This recipe will go in our book as a do over!

    Love scallops and love lemon, however this sauce way overpowered the scallops. Used Meyer lemons and followed the recipe exactly. Won't make again.

    This was wonderful. My kids who are rather young loved it. Will definitely make it again.
