Things You'll Need

How to Make Broiled Scallops
First step in broiling scallops is to go out and buy scallops first. Go to your local fish monger or to your seafood department in your local grocery store. Ask for scallops and be sure that they are fresh and have no smell whatsoever.
Once you get the scallops home, rinse them off inside of metal strainer. Place onto greased pan and set aside for a few minutes.
Take your garlic and butter and place inside microwave container, place inside microwave until the butter is completely melted. Pour mixture of garlic and butter over scallops, toss scallops around until each one is covered in the mixture.
Place inside of over and turn it on broil. Be sure to watch the scallops very carefully, broiling them can over cook or burn them in no time. Once you see the scallops slightly turning any color it is time to remove them immediately. Take out of oven, arrange on plate, serve and enjoy !
Tips & Warnings
