Easy Broiled Scallops with Garlic

The nice thing about scallops is that you can use the simplest cooking method and still have a great dinner.

You can have this broiled scallops dinner ready in less than 20 minutes.

So make sure you have your side dishes almost ready, so you can serve these as soon as they come out of the broiler.

The only planning ahead you need to do is if using frozen scallops, have them thawed ahead of time. Frozen scallops need to thaw in the refrigerator for about 24 hours.

You can use either ay or sea scallops for this recipe. If using bay scallops reduce the cooking time a little because of the smaller size.
