Peppered Scallops Recipe

I absolutely love this delicious Peppered Scallops recipe. I am always trying to find creative ways to squeeze in those heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids...scallops are loaded with them! They are also a very good source of the vitamin B12. B12 helps to keep homocysteine levels low which are associated with atherosclerosis, diabetic heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. So, enjoy the taste and all the healthy benefits!
