Sauteed Scallops

Recipe by  

"A very simple recipe for how delicious it is! Just crush the garlic with the side of a chef's knife blade instead of chopping it, and using whole sprigs of rosemary allows them to be easily removed before serving."

GREAT recipe! I've made scallops this way for years... with a few minor changes. I salt & pepper the scallops, drizzle with a little olive oil and marinate the scallops with a lot more chopped fresh garlic & rosemary. Spray the pan with non stick spray and place the scallops in one at a time (don't dump them in with the juice or you'll end up "boiling" the scallops) and cook 2-4 minutes each side, depending on size. The jumbo sea scallops have the best flavor, just be sure to rinse them well.

This was a little bland for us so I added 1/4 cup more butter, 2 tablespoons white wine, garlic salt to taste, and green onions.

Very good and quick. Suggest heating a Tablespoon of oil in pan before add ing butter so that butter does not burn.

THIS RECIPE WAS GREAT. I USED A LITTLE BIT MORE GARLIC AND A LITTLE LESS ROSEMARY. IT WAS PERFECT. JUST BE CAREFULL NOT TO OVER COOK THE SCALLOPS BECAUSE THEY WILL TURN OUT RUBBERY.

This was very good. I used minced garlic, and added dill weed and lemon pepper to the mix. While the scallops cooked, I constantly spooned the butter and garlic mix over them. It took a lot longer than 2 minutes per side to cook... but I had the jumbo scallops. I served with steamed sugar snap peas and white cheddar shells and cheese macaroni. I will definitely make this again!!

I never cooked scallops before so this recipe was very helpful for my first time. I added a little white wine and I didn't have any rosemary. They turned out great.

Just what I was looking for. Just a nice simple recipe. No sauce,not a lot of other additives to get in the way, just great scallops. This will be a regular in our house.

These were awesome.... just like in the restaurants! I made a few edits however. I used 4 cloves of garlic and added about a 1/4 cup of white wine. I also made sure to rinse the Sea scallops (I prefer these) and pat dry ahead of time. I put salt and pepper on the scallops before sauteing. I'll make these again.
