This recipe is for my husband...I don't do scallops, crab, mussels,clams, oysters, or squid..EVER. But, alas, he does; he is having these for Mother's Day dinner...I am making margaritas and lounging on the couch in new jammies.

16 medium diver scallops, cleaned

1/8 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for searing

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 tablespoon finely chopped thyme

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

In a medium bowl, marinate the scallops with olive oil, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Let them marinate for 20 minutes.

ETA..cook time should be adjusted to suit size of scallops; the scallops we bought were med-large and needed more time per side. He said they were excellent, btw.

Recipe compliments of Food Network and Cat the network...her, not so much.
