      I added extra lemon over the scallops at serving time. These were excellent served with lemon rice and a fresh salad. Thanks!

      This gets 5 stars for simplicity and quick prep time! I enjoyed this recipe, the scallops were cooked perfectly and picked up just a hint of flavor from the sauce. Next time I think I will add some fresh herbs and maybe more garlic, but this is a good dish to highlight the flavor of fresh sea scallops.

      We had this for dinner a few days ago. Very tasty, easy and perfect for some huge diver scallops I had in the freezer. I served with some spaghetti and a salad. Would not change a thing. Thank you for posting. Will make again.
