I could not get any lobster OR seafood stock on New Years Day at Whole Foods....believe it or not... so I quickly and on the spot substituted scallops and clam juice - it was excellent, and probably a little lower in overall cost.

This was so delicious and along with Williams-Sonoma's Summer Vegetable Tian, the star vegetarian dish at our Easter table. People were begging for more and it is easy and quick to prepare, with little to wash up.

Excellent recipe. A keeper! Super-delicious. I did not watch the show, just followed the recipe. Here are my comments:
