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.

Coconut Curry Scallops
The Purcell Sisters combine sweet coconut with savory curry powder for a delicious sauce that perfectly complements seared scallops. A dusting of toasted sweetened coconut adds a slight crunch. A great island-style appetizer. — Allison BeckAdapted from Lauren Purcell and Anne Purcell Grissinger's "Cocktail Parties, Straight Up!"

Meyer Lemon Scallop Ceviche
Hotategai. That's what scallop sashimi is in Japanese. I've always thought that raw scallop was ever so slightly sweet. Delicious, but perhaps in need of a bit of balance. So I created this dish in the hope of bringing that balance to lovely sweet scallop. Meyer lemons provide acidity with just enough sweetness to keep the scallops from taking on too much zing. This is a great appetizer to serve when you have quality scallops. See all ceviche recipes. Click here to see 5 Sublime Scallop Recipes.

Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes
I have a confession to make: I'm not the biggest potato fan. But this recipe gets me every time. Thin slices of potato smothered in creamy, delicious Gruyère cheese — there's no way that could be bad. Serve this as the perfect fall side dish (my family even gives it a spot on the Thanksgiving menu).Click here to see Potato Recipes That Aren't Boring.Click here for more of the 101 Best Slow Cooker Recipes

Bacon-wrapped Scallops
It's a universal fact that everything is better with bacon. So for this take on the classic bacon-wrapped scallop, we add in an extra dose of bacon. By basting the scallops with the bacon grease, you make the overall effect as bacon-y as possible. Click here to see the Bacon: It's What's for Dinner story.

Believe it or not, this was the first time I've ever seared scallops. Yes, it's true. I have a few tips that I picked up on while perfecting these guys that you should know if you're a first-timer, too. One, butter is key. Two, always make sure your scallops are very dry before you sear them. Three, don't overcrowd the pan, because the juices from the scallops will prevent you from properly searing them. The pea purée is a great complement, but keep in mind that you can substitute other vegetables into that as well, such as carrots, butternut squash, or corn.

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

scalloped potatoes
While I love a traditional scalloped potato, I’ve adapted my favorite way to make macaroni and cheese to a delicious, gooey potato dish. This is hearty enough to serve as a Meatless Monday entrée with a side salad.
