My husband loves, loves spicy foods and will eat raw chilies with his meals to kick up the heat. I on the other hand, can't really tolerate the heat chilies give off. I wanted to try this recipe because it called for quite a bit of white and black peppers and I love scallops. This dish was amazing! All the fresh herbs and ground peppers give such great taste! I did however added a little bit of green and red bell peppers and some fresh sliced mushrooms. I also added some minced garlic and cornstarch to thicken the sauce up a bit more. My husband (who has eaten scotch bonnet peppers) actually said this dish had some kick to it and he didn't even add additional hot sauce to it! I didn't think it was that spicy -not the way chilies add heat but the white and black peppers did give it a nice kick without numbing your mouth like fresh chilies do. A great recipe! Oh, and it's really good over white rice as well!!
