    This is such an easy dish but with great end results! I serve it with a pasta such as my Penne Pasta With Asparagus Sauce. Yummy!

      Scallop season just opened. I went out in search and ending up buying some from the I got the big sea scallops rather than the little bay scallop which is what I would have found (had I found any!) This recipe really is easy. I wish I would have made a little more sauce but I'll up that next time (although I may have cooked it down a little too much waiting for the pasta to get ready - put the pasta on first, these scallops cook very quick). I served mine over seashell pasta. Would be great to top with a little parmesan cheese too. Thanks for the quick-n-easy recipe, polly salama.

      added some asparagus, served over some small shell pasta, and we really enjoyed it. wish I'd noticed the suggestion of a little parm. I thought it was a lot of wine, but it made a very light and flavorful sauce. will make again.

      Polly, these are wonderful scallops. I made the recipe, using 3 cloves of garlic and the rest as you directed. We were rewarded with an exceptional dish, full of flavor and a fabulous aroma. I would say gourmet for sure. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe.
