"While it looks great on paper, it didn't taste so great. I found the lemon juice to be a MAJOR flaw in this recipe. I made this last night, and the sauce was not good whatsoever, the scallops were just fine (it's hard to ruin pan seared scallops in butter). We probably would have enjoyed this more had we cut the lemon juice portion in half."
