What to do with scallops?

I have some frozen uncooked scallops from Trader Joes. Any ideas on what to do with them? I don't have a grill.

Saute them in butter and garlic. They cook extremely quickly, and overcooked scallops taste like rubber. Here's a simple recipe:

1. heat 3 tablespoons of butter in a nonstick pan over medium high heat until melted

2. add the scallops (thawed!) and sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper. Sear for two minutes--don't mess with them! After 2 minutes, turn them, and leave them for 2 more minutes (don't push them, poke them, etc since you want them to get nicely seared with a bit of a crust)

3. take the scallops out of the pan. Add another tablespoon of butter, 1 clove chopped garlic, and 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice. Cook on high heat for 30 seconds, then pour over scallops. You can also add 1/4 cup white wine, or chopped parsley or tarragon.

And if you add the white wine, you can also add some cream, and you'll have Coquilles St. Jacques (pretty much, anyway!), and that is one DELISH dish!!

Marinate in soy sauce in a ziplock bag for 30 minutes then drain....

Cut bacon slices in thirds & wrap around the scallop, securing with a toothpick.....or, thread them onto skewers.....

Broil them until the bacon is crisp, turning several times to prevent burning.....

By the time the bacon is cooked, the scallops will be cooked PERFECTLY....

This is my favorite way to eat scallops...
