Recipe by A la Carte
This is from Cooking LIght, and I'm posting it for me to try... Looks simple and fresh and yummy! (Although I might have to add some fresh chili to the mayo mixture). CL sez: Scallops cook quickly. When done, they should feel soft and resilient to the touch. They should also flake easily when tested with a fork and appear moist inside.

- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
