Spicy Scallops Final Picture

I made this recipe for Valentine’s Day but unfortunately was not able to get fresh scallops so I made it with frozen ones. That was a mistake – never use frozen scallops they reduce about 50% in size during cooking and do not have much flavor. The next week I made this recipe again but using fresh scallops and they came out excellent! The spice oil dressing can be made about a week in advance allowing this to be a quick dinner to make after a busy day at work. Add mashed potatoes, a steamed vegetable, plus a glass of wine and you have a gourmet meal in less than 30-minutes! (Remember I purchase my mashed potatoes pre-made from Wegmans.)

1/4 cup Olive Oil
2 Garlic Cloves…
