    Hi Lisa, OOOH…amazing!!! I don’t have any scallops in the freezer, and I’m still in “use what we have” mode, but damn, this makes me want to make a trip to the seafood department in the grocery store! 🙂
    Have a great Wednesday.

      They were so good, Roz! I’ve been thinking about that dinner for days now. Definitely give it a try!

    I like them when I eat them in restaurants, but I’ve never bought them before. Those look really good!

      They were delicious. I am super proud of us for succeeding. LOL It could have gone horribly wrong.

    My fave way to cook scallops is to put them on skewers and drizzle with balsamic vinegar and then either pan sear or grill them. So. Freakin. Good. And quick because they cook in minutes!

      That is a fantastic idea! I will try them your way next time. I love the idea of skewers.

    I usually just saute them with spices in a little olive oil, but this butter/garlic/lemon comdo looks divine! Thanks for making me so hungry when dinner is a good 3 hours away … LOL!

      What spices do you like to use?

      1. cheryle

        Usually some combo of garlic powder, paprika, oregano, black pepper. Nothing to write home about, I like your recipe much better!

        1. Lisa Eirene

          That sounds good. I will try that next time. Thanks for responding, Cheryle! 🙂

    Great bloggers think alike! On Tuesday I did a post covering what I’ve learned while trying to cook scallops. From various comments it’s apparent I’ve learned less than I thought. If only this post had come around sooner!
