This Dish is reminiscent of a dish I ordered many years ago in a fine French Restaurant in Quebec.
I remember calling it Shrimp Proffa Sally: I was a little kid after all. It looked so good but….. I couldn’t stand garlic, and would not eat one bit of if after I tasted the garlic.
Now I love this dish and This is pretty close to the original, only better with the Lemoncello® Sauce.
You can do the same thing with sea scallops.
