      I knew that these would be a hit with DH, so I doubled the recipe. Unfortunately, I overcrowded the pan in doing so (too impatient to cook in 2 batches), so they didn't get as much sear as I would've liked, so I didn't bother taking a photo. Totally my fault, and the flavor was still great even if the appearance wasn't as nice as I'd hoped. I served these with Tippys Amazing Broiled Haddock and Butternut Squash W/ Wilted Spinach and Blue Cheese, and DH and I had a lovely seafood night. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall '12

      As a sub for searing flour, I used Wondra® Instant Flour Substitute with added salt & white pepper. Delectable and what comes to mind are four words, "Go forth and gorge!"

      Excellent! Added salt, pepper and cayanne to the flour for seasoning. Only had smaller scallops so no oven step needed. Also added a splash of lemon juice for the last 2 minutes of cooking. My new go-to recipe for scallops. Used as an appetizer. Winner!
