I was just looking for some new slow cooker recipes yesterday. Since I love Seafood, it sounds perfect. The only problem for me is the tumeric. I can't get used to the taste. I guess I can just leave it out. Thanks for sharing.

Hi, Carol, Darcy and Colleen.

Carol, I leave out ingredients I don't like all the time. I don't like green bell peppers, they taste bitter to me and I never put them in my dishes.

Darcy, I never understood people who 'don't like seafood.' LOL. There's such a variety of them. I pretty much like them all. And I like crockpot recipes, cause they are fix and forget.

Gluten free! I didn't realize. An added benefit!

My whole family love seafood. Using a crockpot makes it all the better!

I don't believe I have ever had scallops though. I will have to look that one up. I may have had them at a restaurant, but I know I have never made them at home.

Thank you for the recipes!

Hi, Deb and Jennifer.

I like scallops. I don't usually cook them though, I get them in restaurants. I've not made this recipe but I will sometime soon.

I'm with you Jennifer, I don't go for 'real spicy.' I may cut back on the hot stuff here. My husband says I think ketchup is I'm not THAT bad. But spicy is not my normal dish.
