Adapted this recipe from Quick Cooking. This is the only way my one son will eat scallops.

There were 3 of us for supper when I made this (along with a second seafood dish) so I cut the recipe in half to get 3 slightly smaller servings! And although I pretty much followed the recipe, I did cut back on both the salt & pepper then filled those seasonings out by adding some lemon pepper! Loved doing scallops this way ~ Very tasty & satisfying! Thanks for sharing the recipe [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
