1 lb natural and untreated scallops
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons melted butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup white wine
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Pinch of salt

Saute the garlic for a little bit and add the scallops, pan-sear until both surfaces turn brown. Add the white wine, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. Bring it to a light simmer or until the inside of the scallops are cooked through. Turn off heat and serve immediately.
You may serve the garlic scallops with pasta or as is.
