I've made this scallop recipe for years. It's just something I came up with, it was good, so it stuck.
Large sea scallops
Stick of butter
1-1/2 Tbsp minced garlic
Shredded white cheese (like Parmigiano Reggiano)
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In an oven safe dish, in a sinlge layer, lay out the scallops. Melt the butter in the microwave and stir in minced garlic. Pour this over the scallops. Bake in the over 7 minutes and flip. Continue baking until done (depends on your oven, but doesn't take long to cook these). Pour off most of the butter. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and broil until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Serve.
