My husband thinks these scallops are better than any we have found in any restaurant.

The first time I made this I followed the recipe exactly, and it was excellent. The second time, however, it was OUT OF THIS WORLD making the following changes: Instead of broiling, melt the butter in a saucepan over med/high heat. Add the remaining ingredients (except the lemon) and sautee the scallops for approx two minutes on each side. Pour the scallops and the sauce over pilafed rice, squeeze fresh lemon juice over the top, and garnish with a little parsley and a tiny bit of paprika for color. My fiance says this is the best seafood recipe I have ever made!

I have made this recipe over a dozen times. It's the best. One suggestion, mix the liquid ingredients all together and then brush on scallops. Then sprinkle with crushed black pepper and parmesan. It's great for a weekend meal as well as for company. thank you to the original subscriber!

Absolutely excellent! Only limited by the quality of scallops used. We used cheap-o Sam's frozen scallops because that is what we had on hand..similar to another reviewer, and they still turned out good. (I halved the garlic salt and added garlic powder as another reviewer recommended). My husband often eats scallops when we eat out, and can vouch for the great taste of this unassuming recipe. I rate it 5 for ease and he rates it 5 for taste. A winner!
