This is an quick and easy scallops recipe. Make sure to use "dry" sea scallops (the ones without any water added). Simple and delicious.

Quick and delicious recipe! After purchasing a bag of frozen scallops on sale at Target, I was at a loss for a recipe. While the scallops thawed in a collander, I sauted the garlic with 4 minced green onions. Instead of tarragon, I used dried basil from my garden and then served the scallops over angel hair pasta. Next time, I will definitely use more garlic and herbs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If some scallops are a lot larger than others, you may want to cut the larger ones in half.
  2. Rinse scallops and pat dry with paper towels.
  3. In a skillet heat butter over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and lightly sautee for about 1 minute.
  4. Add scallops and tarragon. Cook for about 6-7 minutes or until scallops are opaque; turning each once halfway through cooking.
  5. Sprinkle with paprika and parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
