    I know this may be a stupid question but should I keep the heat low when adding the fish?  -  21 Oct 2008


    I had a few scallops I didn't really know what to do with, so thought I'd give this a try. I only added about a third of the butter with dry vermouth instead of the wine. I served it over spaghetti. It was a nice & quick meal after a day at work.  -  15 Mar 2014
