Quick Bay Scallop Starter


Author Notes: There are only two of us at home and I love to ready my palate before dinner, but making an appetizer is usually to much effort than it's worth. This dish however uses basic ingredients often found in main dishes you may be preparing (other than the Bay Scallops of course), making this appetizer quick,cheap, and easy. MjrScoop
