  1. Great recipe, did this for a birthday party celebration feeding four people and it was excellent. Personal preference might be to add a few more scallops maybe 1/2 lb but otherwise “motto bono.” Will be on the keeper list for the LG BGE .

  2. This is flat out delicious. I doubled the shallots and cooked the bacon in the same skillet , and left the drippings. Served it over rice which I did cook indoors.
