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.

Maybe my scallops were teeny (bought in Switzerland), but a total of 3 minutes frying time (on higher heat than recommended, mind you) was more than enough to send them rubbery. I can't understand how 15 minutes even at a lower heat wouldn't make them rubbery as well. Other than that, the taste was great, though! Thanks for sharing!

This is how I like my scallops, plain. Actually I just used salt and pepper with the olive oil and they are great!!
