Fresh sea scallops are marinated with just the right combination of spices including, Cajun Blend, Lemon Pepper, and Garlic Granules. These spiced scallops are then skillet-seared until they are perfectly browned. Serve them with a little lemon juice and you have a scallop that is cooked just right with that delicious Cajun taste. It's a terrific special meal fit for a king or queen!
