I love me some SCALLOPS!

Sam and I loooooove scallops.  We had some of the best scallops at this Chinese restaurant awhile back and I wanted to try making it one day.  Well, we bought scallops the other day and I decided to give it a go.  I didn't follow any recipe and just winged it from what I remember eating.  Not to toot my own horn, but it was soooooo good!  I've decided to share my recipe... just because I am THAT cool!  :)

And yeah, I know that this being fried and drenched in butter isn't the healthiest thing to eat, but it surely will melt in your mouth!  If you don't want to eat it, just make it and I will eat it for you.  You are welcome.
