scallops until she had a properly prepared one. >>>

So what is your favorite method/recipe for cooking scallops?

I'd like to try cooking scallops sometime.  They do tend to be  
expensive, so it will probably have to wait until I'm employed again,  
though. Of course, that's why I haven't cooked them before. Although  
some types, bay scallops?, are cheaper than others.

A quick search in the Florilegium does turn up a number of period  
recipes for scallops, but at the price of scallops I'm not sure I'd  
do the ones that have you mincing or grinding up the scallops. Might  
as well use a cheaper fish for that.

I wonder if scallops are another of those foods, like lobster, which  
have done a flip-flop from being poor people's food to being  
expensive delicacies for the more well off.
