Yesterday HubbyDearest and I were grocery shopping. He said "I like scallops, but you never make them". I replied that I had never cooked them in my entire life [68 years], but I'm willing to try. We purchased them. This evening I sauted them in a little olive oil, butter, garlic and s&p. Deglazed the pan with white wine and made a "modified bierre blanc". This is definately something we'll have again, now that I'm not "afraid" of them any longer!
