I went out for dinner the other night to a beach/seafood restaurant and ordered scallops fried in butter and garlic. What I got was a surprise (it sometimes is), but it was a happy one. They had sliced the scallops horizontally until they were about a quarter inch thick and seared them very quickly in butter and lots of garlic. They were outstanding. Next time I buy scallops, I'll definitely cook them that way.

Mmmm, grapefruit. That never crossed my mind when I suggested the vinegar / oil slaw. We really like the taste of orange with our scallops, grapefruit would be a good kick I think. Making a note in my mind for next time we cook up some scallops.
