This dinner was made last Friday when we had our dinner guests… I forgot to take a picture of the final product 🙁 but have the steps leading up to it!
The fun part is roasting the peppers…aren’t they colorful!
These ingredients make up the sauce
The scallops are grilled and served with the sauce… this is the part where you have to use your imagination of the scallops being served with the sauce. They were pretty good though I might want to add more spice next time – a little bland for me – so we gave it 3 stars
