Reviews for Skillet Sea Scallops

I had medium-sized Peruvian sea scallops, and they were delicious. Picky Wife doesn't care for breading, so next time I'll try cooking the scallops without breading, then add some bread crumbs to the sauce for thickening. Tasty, zingy sauce! Served over angel hair pasta with fresh spinach, strawberry, and walnut salad. Mmmmmm!
Easy and great tasting! Made for family company and even the kids ate them!
Fabulous, and so easy. Served with rice.
We loved this recipe-was quick, easy, and delicious! Substituted panko for the dry bread crumbs.
A very tasty presentation for scallops, I served it over rice.
