Are they frozen? if so, defrost and pat them VERY dry with paper towels. If they're not frozen, you still want to make sure they are very dry before cooking or they won't brown up correctly.

Brown some butter in a skillet, get it good and hot, plop those scallops in there - don't crowd them or they dejuice and just steam. You want them to sear on the bottom. If your pan is hot enough, it only takes a minute or so, depending on the size of the scallops. Once there is a browned crust on the bottom, flip them over and do the same on the second side.

I love them just the way they are, I don't like to even season them - they have their own sweet taste and the browned butter just adds to it. You can squeeze a little lemon on them though if you like!

Thaw them out and make sure they are patted dry. Add 2 Tbsp. EVOO and 2 Tbsp. Butter and 1 Tbsp. Garlic in a hot pan. Add the Scallops and don't let them touch. Cook 2 min. on each side, they should have a golden sear. Sit down and eat those Bad Boy's cause the are good, good, good...

And here is another consideration - you said you don't want bacon, but how about prosciutto? We like bacon-wrapped scallops just fine but wrapping them with prosciutto is MUCH better - the scallops don't overcook waiting for the bacon to get crispy and it adds just a nice sweet/salty taste that doesn't overpower the scallops.

You can cook them the same way as above, or you can put them on a sheet pan and pop into a 400* oven til the scallops are just opaque all the way through. REALLY good this way too!

Check out the allrecipes website for several recipes on broiling them in the oven. Mostly with butter, lemon juice, and spices.
