This dish is so delicious and so easy to prepare!! It was the first time I cooked scallops and they turned out spectacular. It reminded me of a garlic shrimp dish I order at my favorite Thai re...

Incredible. This was so easy and so quick, and my husband and I couldn't get enough. Fantastic recipe, especially when you want something really tasty in a hurry!

I didn't have enough scallops, so I added flounder to the 1/2 lb. of scallops that I had. I also added white wine with the fresh lemon. We thought that this recipe was delicious! Thanks Ken!!

I don't eat scallops but my hubby and daughter really enjoyed this simple and quick dish. Added more garlic and a few seasonings. Thanks Ken!

This is sooo good! And very simple. I will be making this again, and for a special dinner.

NOT Good At All!! Made these for a dinner party & NOBODY ate them. Sorry Ken!

get rid of lemon, and add butter to oil and u have a winner!

These were very good. Next time I will double the amount of garlic.

Our garlic burned, and I think the scallops were overcooked, but overall, pretty tasty.
