Simple Saute Scallops

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Lois M

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.

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.
