  1. Cut scallops into quarters, unless they are tiny bay scallops which may be left whole. Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add scallops, and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Drain, and place them into a jar while hot. Pour in the French dressing, and add the garlic. Screw the lid onto the jar, and shake to coat. Refrigerate until chilled to marinate. Drain and serve with toothpicks.

Very good! I added a pinch each of salt, pepper and garlic powder. I also added a small sliver of cream cheese. made this over the weekend. Might be cooked to add some bacon bits or bacon.

Didn't work out so well for me. If I try again I will take the pot off the heat and just let them soak since four minutes of cooking left them too hard for my taste. Also wondering if the mix needs something like raw onions or bell peppers.
