"This recipe was tricky for me. Watch out not to overcook the scallops. You may want to remove them from the pan after browning and cook the aromatics by themselves in the sauce, otherwise scallops turn into rubber. Also be careful not to let the butter burn or brown to quickly before adding the scallops to the pan. I think I used too much white"

"Make this recipe!! It is well worth it. A nice change from the usual eggplant caponata. The fresh artichokes are a bit of a pain to peel and clean, but once you have done that the rest of it is easy to put together. Make she you use enough oil as stated and carmelize the artichokes and carrots and onions. The carmelization is what gives it the "

"This recipe was delicious. I made it exactly like the recipe. I have been eating eggplant caponata for years and this is a real nice switch with the artichokes. It really brings out the flavors reminiscent of Sicily Italy."

"This recipe is worth the trouble of cleaning and peeling the fresh artichokes. My father and I , long time Italians loved this dish! The recipe calls for two tablespoons of grated cheese, but Mario looked like he at least put in one half cup when he did this dish on his show. I used at least that amount. The cheese and the egg combo made a nice""

"Very delicious and fast to make. I did not have the fenugeek and cardomom available. Since garam masala has cardomon in it I used that instead. Along with the paprika and cumin it worked just fine. That squeeze of lemon on top of the shrimp after it was cooked really gave it a nice zest and complimented the flavors of the shrimp. I also made the c"
