I made this tonight for dinner for myself and it is very flavorful! The only changes I made were that I had jumbo scallops that I halved and I sauteed the scallops, shrimp and peas in a tiny bit of butter and olive oil. Then just did the rest of the recipe as stated. Very yummy!

I made this recipe according to the directions, not making any changes and I thought it was absolutely tasteless. I have made many recipes from this site and I have never had a recipe turn out so bad. I served this at a family get together and everyone was in agreement. I will not be trying this recipe again.

LOVED THIS! If I could of given more stars I would have. Surprisingly delicious with only (8) ingredients! Love the fresh flavor of the celery leaves with the richness of the garlic-oil. I preferred SEARING the scallops in a tsp. of the set-aside garlic/oil (I used a light EVOO), used the shrimp to deglaze pan (the little bit of juice in the shrimp worked nicely for deglazing)and then mixed all. I enjoyed it warm, as well as chilled ...maybe even a little more. Will be making this for company soon! Thank you Lillian for sharing this great recipe!

This was excellent with a few alterations. I saute' the Bay scallops instead in 1 Tbsp. Butter and 1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil combined. The Jumbo Shrimp I used were pre-cooked and I used 1/2 cup Olive Oil instead of Corn Oil and added Black Pepper, Oregano and 1/4 cup sliced Black Olives. I served this for my Appetizer/Cocktail Party and my company being garlic lovers absolutely was astounded by the flavor combination and loved it. This is definitely a keeper and it is a nice refreshing change for a summer salad :-)

Wow, this is very nice! I followed the recipe as written and I recommend this dish to all. I served it as a side dish instead of an appetizer and it complimented my BBQ meal very well. The celery leaves are a nice touch and adds a unique fresh flavour with the combination of parsley & garlic. THX.
