I didn't really get this recipe from anyone, it's just (for as long as I can remember) one of the basic ways that I have always prepared scallops. It's easy, quick to prepare, and the sauce really complements the scallops. I've prepared this with and without the wine, and it is just as delicious either way. That's why I listed that ingredient as optional.
