Easy Pan-Seared Scallops
Try pairing these spicy scallops with a grüner veltliner (goes well with both seafood and spice) and a simple salad of arugula with Parmigiano-Reggiano in a lemon and olive oil vinaigrette.  The method below does not cook the scallops all the way through, but if you're eating good quality scallops then that's what you want to do. However, if you'd like to cook them through, then keep the heat on for about 45 seconds longer than suggested below.  Click here for 7 Satisfying Low-Carb Recipes.

While scallops are sometimes a pricey dinner to serve, they make great appetizers to pass around a party. Just stick a toothpick in them and they're edible. They're decadent but otherwise very healthy.

Scallops over Brussels sprouts
Scallops and butter are like peanut butter and jelly; it’s a classic combination that works well, and we don’t question it. I don’t normally add cream to my beurre blanc, but for those of you not familiar with butter sauces, the added stability will ensure that you get a perfectly emulsified sauce every time. When shopping for scallops, U-10 means that there are just under 10 scallops per pound. So, if a recipe calls for U-40 scallops, you'll be shopping for small bay scallops where about 40 pieces equal a pound. Pairs well with a light, crisp white wine, such as Sancerre or Pinot Grigio.

Pan-Seared Scallops with Sunchoke and Meyer Lemon
Sunchokes are prepared three ways in this recipe from executive chef David Diaz of Brasserie Beaumarchais — as a purée for the base, roasted for the centerpiece, and fried into chips for garnish. A Meyer lemon purée and brown butter lemon sauce add some fruitiness and richness to perfectly cooked scallops.

Pan-Seared Scallops
After attempting to be crazy fancy — and setting off the fire alarm in my smoke-filled apartment — I decided that simplicity is the way to go when dealing with these tasty bivalves. All you need for this recipe is high-quality butter, scallops, and a pan. The butter will add richness and flavor, while still allowing the scallops to shine on their own. If you want to jazz it up, wrap them in bacon. Click here to see 5 Sublime Scallop Recipes. Click here for the 10 Seafood Recipes You Can Make in Less Than 15 Minutes
