Fixed this last night for dinner...Yummo! followed the recipe except for adding some garlic and a little butter to the olive oil. (We love garlic) I served it with Derf's Chinese Spinach and a little side of rice.

This is so easy and fast. Great for fresh scallops. There is no reason to do anything else. Let the scallops shine!! Loved it.
