Simple but tasty dish. I recommend using all of the garlic but you can cut back if you wish. Goes well with pasta or rice

very lovely recipe, the soaking of the scallops in milk beforehand really adds to their flavor. i added some zucchini to the saute and piled high the garlic. also added some salt and lots of pepper at the end of cooking time. will definitely be cooking my scallops this way again.

I usually make this recipe with scallops but last night I made it with prawns (the large green prawns) and it was delicious. Next time I'll mix scallops & prawns. I usually up the garlic too and cut wau back on the butter

I had never cooked scallops and this turned into a catastrophe. It was partly my fault because I don't think my skillet was large enough because the breading on the scallops stayed mushy. The flavor had a nice taste, but it was unevenly flavored and overpowered by the mushiness of the wet doughy flour. I would probably try this again without the flour because the flavor was nice. Also-you may want have all ingredients set up and ready because once you begin making this you are pushed for the next step. It is a very fast recipe.
