Shrimp or Scallops in Garlic Butter

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kozmic Blues

This dish is really quick, and easy to prepare, but its filled with terrific, rich flavor. I've made it with both the shrimp and the scallops, and both worked very well.

Yum! I made this with shrimp and the sauce had a wonderful garlicky taste that didn't overpower them. I made no changes to the recipe except for adding cracked black pepper before serving.
