Pan Seared Bay Scallops

Bay scallops are much smaller than wild caught scallops. Bay scallops are also less expensive. In many cases, they are half the price. Start by marinating the scallops in butter and lemon juice for several hours. Heat two tablespoons of oil and one tablespoon of vinegar in a frying pan. Add the scallops and cook for 5-6 minutes. Place the scallops in a bowl and coat them with Italian dressing.
