“This is a perfect light dish for spring or summer. I used bay scallops and reduced the cooking time to 2 minutes per side. An easy way to season the scallops is to put them in a plastic bag along with the coating mixture, and just shake the bag a few times. If you need the Old Bay, DiB's Old Bay Seasoning #2 is good. This recipe's source is McCormick.”
