I am always looking for easy, delicious, and quick meals to make for two.  Scallops are so delicious and easy to make especially for two.  This is a recipe is quick, simple, spotlighting the sweet taste of fresh scallops.  Oh did I mention low in calories!

 

Marinated Scallops for two

 

1/2 lb. Sea Scallops*

juice of 1/2 lemon

1 clove garlic, crushed

1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

 

Rinse Scallops in water and pat dry.  In a medium bowl combine lemon, garlic and pepper.  Add Scallops, gently toss to coat.  Refrigerate for four hours.

 

I use a grill pan which I love but you can make the scallops in a frying pan.  Heat pan to high, add scallops and sear quickly on both sides.  Don't over cook or scallops will be tough. The scallops will be golden

 

* Sea scallops are large while bay scallops are small.

 

Enjoy!
