Reply to "It's NOVEMBER... what's on the grill?"

Again... not on the grill but Delicious, and easy!!! A little variation on the "standard prep."

Broiled Scallops

1 pound fresh sea scallops
1/2 stick butter
2 Tblspn Madeira (approx... I just used a healthy splash)
2 medium cloves of garlic
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
juice from 1/2 lemon

Preheat the broiler and melt the butter on stove or in microwave.
Finely chop the garlic cloves, and add to butter.
Stir in the Madeira.
Place 2/3 of the sauce on bottom of oven proof glass baking dish.
Place scallops in single layer over sauce.
Season with salt and pepper. Lightly "dash" scallops with paprika and parsley.
Pour remaining sauce over scallops.
Squeeze half of the juice from lemon over scallops.
Broil for 7-8 minutes... but don't over cook, else they'll get tough.
Remove, and plate.
Pour sauce over scallops, and squeeze remaining juice from lemon over scallops.

The took about 20 minutes to prepare and cook, and was better than any restaurant scallops the wife and I have ever had (and I love scallops).
