Garlic Shrimp and Scallops (Lent Compliant)

This was a first time recipe for me, but judging from the reaction, it will not be the last time.  This dish is best served over angelhair pasta.  This is very easy to make and I made only the tiniest adjustments from the Recipezaar original recipe!

Note:  Use only raw seafood for this recipe, not frozen, precooked.
