I really loved this. It was simple to make, yet had great flavor and was filling. I decreased the overall amount of olive oil to 3 tbsp. and doubled the garlic. Using good-quality dry sea scallops is very important. Just as important is not overcooking them. Thanx for sharing this great scallop recipe!
