Spicy Lime Scallops


My happiness meter runneth over this week!  Fresh, wild scallops with great friends.  Could it get any better?

I LOVE scallops but am so afraid to cook them.  I get flashbacks of Gordon Ramsey yelling at poor souls on Hell’s Kitchen.  What is the rubbery mess?????  Thankfully I had help with this one.  I think I may be confident enough now to give them a whirl – maybe. These were absolutely the best, the sauce is to die for. Seriously, try them!
