"This is a foolproof yet elegant way to make sea scallops, which are somewhat tricky," Lynnae Neuberger of Marshfield, Wisconsin says of her no-fuss main dish. "And it couldn't be simpler because it uses the microwave."

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh or frozen sea scallops, thawed and rinsed
  • 12 small fresh mushrooms, halved
  • 1 tablespoon white wine or chicken broth
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted

Directions

  1. Place the scallops and mushrooms in a 9-in. glass pie plate or dish. Combine the wine, lemon juice and seasonings; pour over scallop mixture.
  2. Cover and microwave at 50% power for 2 minutes; stir. Cover and microwave at 50% power 4 to 4-1/2 minutes longer or until scallops turn opaque. Stir in melted butter.
