    Lois M's Note:

    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.

      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!!!
