Scallops with sage

Scallops with Sage, a really good appetizer or dinner.
If you do not like sage, you can replace it with tarragon or thyme.
For dinner I would make a good risotto, suggestions for risotto can be found here:
Risotto with scallops.

Some tips before frying scallops, dry them so they are dry, use oil in the pan and do not stir them while frying. Fry them for approx. 1 minute on each side.
Good luck!
