Global.Potpourri's picture
The gingered scallops is a flavorful and light preparation for sea scallops made cooked along with sherry and celery. I use fisg stock for this recipe and it is a favorite with my family. Sprinkled with parsley, you can serve the gingered scallops with any side of choice.
