This is a variation of a Recipezaar recipe for sugar-seared salmon (very tasty!). I decided to experiment with how I could make this recipe work with scallops because (1) I love the sweet, delicate taste of seared scallops; and (2) they were on sale. The results were great! I put them over rice, but you can put them over whatever you want... you can even put them over a nice romaine salad (you can chill the sauce and use it for dressing). Hope you enjoy, too. P.S. - I know it seems like this is an awful lot of butter to use, but you'll be making sauce with it, too.
