This is a quote from aussie-true-blue-recipes.com as is the photo and recipe. Check out the other recipes on this site, all are awesome, and worth the look.
"There is only one secret to cooking successful scallops, no matter what the recipe is- don't overcook them. If being pan-fried, scallops need only be cooked 1 1/2 minutes on each side. If poaching in milk or cream- about 5 minutes on the very outside. Any longer and scallops will resemble very expensive rubber."
Great served over pasta or rice or potatoes, mashed or baked.
