Scallops "Tastes of the Sea"

These unique shelled beauties moves quickly as a snap along the oceans bottom floor. Their tender soft texture finds me committed for more. Remarkable yet distinctive taste uniquely complementary to the palate! With fork tender pleasure we all come to enjoy. They are easy and swift to prepare.This dish has the sweetness of tomato coupled with garlic and onions , that receive a kick of lime to give zing, followed by the mellowing effect of extra virgin olive oil. O ' yes finished with a sprinkle of Italian flat leaf parsley. I hope one day you will like and have fun making Scallops.
