"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.
Hi from TX...I had a weird craving for scallops (no, I'm not pregnant!)and tried this. I used very small "bay" scallops. If I do it again I'll splurge for the $12.99/lb huge scallops. These turned out semi-okay; I tried to sear them in my iron skillet in a mixture of olive oil and a little butter, sprinkled garlic salt and some italian seasoning, but they were very lackluster. I'm a newbie to cooking seafood so I'm sure it's my mistake. Thanks for the post!
