Recipe: Broiled Scallops in Garlic Butter

This is a meal my husband always made…. I loved it so much… we used to have it at least once a month. It’s a variation of a scampi recipe. We served it with rice pilaf and a salad and a crusty bread…. A glass of wine… I was a happy woman.


This recipe calls for bay scallops (small), you can also use sea scallops (large)…just adjust the cooking time.

This is also an easy buffet item... you can prepare this very quickly.

This recipe should serve 4.
