Seared Scallops In Garlic Pepper Sauce

Any kind of seafood is a real treat for us here at the cottage. We are about 3 to 4 hours from the coast so we don't get a lot of fresh seafood. We usually have our local fish that we catch from the lake or that a good neighbor has caught and given us and that is usually, Catfish, Crappie, Bass or in season Craw Fish. They were having a sale on Scallops at the local market last week so I bought these Scallops to surprise my husband, he just loves Scallops. I seared them in a real special Garlic Pepper Sauce and he wanted more, well next time maybe these were $1.85 each on sale, they were real special!
