In a large saucepan heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil with the garlic
over meduim heat. When the garlic starts to sizzle, pour in the tomatoes.
Add the salt and crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat.
Simmer the sauce for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

In another skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil over high
heat. Add the shrimp and scallops. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until the
shrimp turn pink, stirring frequently. Add to the tomato mixture. Stir in

This was excellent with a colorful leafy salad with grilled chicken pieces,
shredded cabbage, Oriental noodles and Good Seasons Oriental Salad Dressing
mix. (...to replace all that vinegar, use 1 Tb. vinegar and some soy sauce
and remaining water to vinegar line. Cut down on the oil too!
