    Scallops are eaten raw in many cultures (sushi, ceviche, etc) so they don't need much cooking time at all. Like most shellfish, they become tough when cooked too long.

    Best thing to do: get a heavy pan stinkin' hot and sear them for just 20 - 30 seconds on a side in a little clarified butter (yum) or olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, a little lemon juice and you're good to go.

    Good scallops should be sweet, tender with a mild, pleasant seafood flavor.

    Search the 'net for how to choose good scallops. Not hard, but a couple things to look for.


  3. The "smaller" the scallops the better they are is something I've been told.

    I'll toss a bunch of shrimp in a pan with olive oil, lots of sauteed minced garlic, minced onion,
    & reduced white wine, then add some butter and toss...
    Then I'll add some scallops, some seasoning, toss real quick, cover, and let the scallops finish cooking off the heat...
    Squeeze lemon, and toss with chopped Italian Parsley...

    Lotsa garlic bread...
