Sea Scallops and Mushrooms Recipe

"This is a foolproof yet elegant way to make sea scallops, which are somewhat tricky," Lynnae Neuberger of Marshfield, Wisconsin says of her no-fuss main dish. "And it couldn't be simpler because it uses the microwave."

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh or frozen sea scallops, thawed and rinsed

  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted

Directions

  • 1. Place the scallops and mushrooms in a 9-in. glass pie plate or dish. Combine the wine, lemon juice and seasonings; pour over scallop mixture.
  • 2. Cover and microwave at 50% power for 2 minutes; stir. Cover and microwave at 50% power 4 to 4-1/2 minutes longer or until scallops turn opaque. Stir in melted butter. Yield: 3 servings.

"This was super easy and overall wasn't bad...it was just not how I'd like my scallops; I increased all the ingredients because I had a feeling it may be a bit bland and even after increasing the ingredients it was just not super flavorful. I'm glad I tried it--it showed me that other recipes I've made really are that good and worth a little bit more time they might take to prepare."

"I'm getting ready to make this again for supper. It was soo easy and delicious. I served this over no-yolk egg noodles. This time I am also going to saute some zucchini w/ sesame seeds as a side dish."
