Too many people are unaware of how simple it is to prepare delicious seafood at home. Most important, shrimp and scallops must never be overcooked. You want that little “tooth bounce” to greet you with each bite. Overcooking removes this. Note Melissa, in the recipe below, allows just a short amount of time more for the shrimp than the scallops and very little total time for both.
As she states, depending on how much people eat, this recipe serves up as an hors d’oeurve, an appetizer or dinner for two.
