I didn't use a recipe, but this is what I did -
Heat a little butter in a pan on medium heat, when hot put the scallops in and leave for about two minutes - do not move them about. Turn after two minutes. Serve on spaghetti that was tossed with Carluccio's lemon olive oil, to which has been added tiny halved tomatoes and torn Prosciutto.
I'll try that again!
Scallops with black pudding, fab combination. Scallops with chorizo, oh yeah. There used to be a restauranty kind of thing where you'd stack discs of black pudding, scallop and caramelised apple rings - I actually prefer it without the apple, although the three different flavour/texture/appearance thing adds a great "wow" factor on the plate if you're showing off.
I can't improve on Toffeeapple's method of cooking, (you could grill them too, btw), but they do love a bit of garlic in there somewhere. And if the scallops are really fat, you can cut them (horizontally) in two, or even three - which makes them go further and cooks them in seconds.

Wow, sounds heavenly, you know what's on my shopping list, many thanks for that, much appreciated.
Where did you get your Scallops from?
I shall have to try it this way, you're a great source of information on all-sorts of things, you never cease to amaze me!
You're one clever lady¦..

Another great idea, love chorizo, garlic, you name it I like it, love toffeapple's recipe also, oh dear, my shopping list keeps getting longer & longer, I'm not complaining though, love all the ideas, keep them coming please.
I'll second the scallops with black pudding idea " I've had that in a restaurant it was great. I've also had scallops wrapped in some kind of bacon or pancetta.
I don't have a recipe handy but I've cooked them with a saffron cream sauce, served them with pasta, and drizzled with some basil oil, or with a bit of pesto.
Visit my blog for food, drink, photography and hamsters.
I'll second that, delicious and ever so versatile.
Thanks for the scallops recipe, delicious!
Teeth chattering now, I can't get warm tonight! Thankfully heating & hot water on again, for how long though¦¦
Car test tomorrow¦.. know that it needs a new sill¦..Nightmare 2011 so far, things can only get better! I hope.
Oh thankyou so much, always thoughtful as ever. I've got hot water bottle on my back, a hot cuppa here beside me, fleece blanket wrapped around me, rather like 'mitchelin man', as long as I get warmed through, that's the main thing, I've another bottle in bed nice & hot to take the chill out.
Every thing seems damp when it's got very cold, or it's my imagination, probably both!
Thanks also, being with me on the M.O.T. on the car tomorrow, I've got everything crossed that it's not going to be too costly.
Much appreciated, Odelle.
Good luck with the car today Odelle and I do hope you are feeling warmer.
Oh thank you, bad news I'm afraid, lots to do to make it fit for the road......Argh!
Big hug, much appreciated, hey it's much warmer today, great, the house is probably sighing with relief along with me......
Now then, what to cook for evening meal tonight?
Just added my bit to the Channel 4 website regarding the cruelty of fishing, this is what happens when the local fishmongers are 'chased' out of the High Street by high rental and supermarkets. Well done to every one concerned for bringing the problem in to our homes, I just hope that consumers do their bit though also.
Support your local suppliers or we'll loose them all eventually, which I know that you adopt the same principals as I do myself as do lots of people on here do thankfully.
