So simple, fast, and tasty. Cook time is for Sea scallops (the large ones) if using the small Bay scallops reduce heat and cook time accordingly.

- 1 teaspoon paprika
- heat saute pan, add oil.
- saute garlic and shallot until tender.

- cook over med heat approx 15 min (depending on size of scallops) turn mid way.
Enjoyed this recipe. It's easy and has flavor. I made sure and paper towel dried the scallops prior to putting them in the pan and they crusted very nicely. Will make this again.
This is how I like my scallops, plain. Actually I just used salt and pepper with the olive oil and they are great!!
Very quick, easy and good. I don't think I had the best quality scallops and am anxious to try this again when I know my scallops are premium. I think I would add a little more garlic -- and maybe a little butter as well. The only thing I question is the cooking time. Fifteen minutes seems like an awfully long time to cook scallops. I only cooked mine for about 5 minutes, max. My husband and I shared a pound of scallops -- but I could have eaten the entire pound by myself!!!
