Clean the sea scallops by simply removing the catch muscle on the side of each scallop.
Pat scallops dry with paper towel and add to marinade. Marinate, stirring occasionally, up to 1 hour or cover and refrigerate, stirring occasionally, up to 24 hours.
Preheat broiler. Arrange scallops and marinade in a single layer in 2 individual broiler-proof dishes or in scallop shells.

Serve with lemon wedges a sprinkling of parsley, hot crusty French bread to soak up the juices, and a side of lightly sautéed green beans on the side.
