We love scallops but find them overcooked many times when dining out so rather take a chance I just prepare them home! This is an adaptation of an older, no longer in existence nicer seaside restaurant in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. It's sad that many of the finer establishments go by the wayside after the original owners pass away. Please note the saute' time is less than 10 minutes and could be between 5 and 10 minutes depending on side of halved scallops.
