Shellfish Sunday - Broiled Scallops

Where I'm from in the midwest, people eat pot roast on Sundays.  We now live on the Gulf Coast and we always eat shellfish on Sundays.  Sometimes scallops, sometimes shrimp, on special occasions, crab legs.  It's our thing.  Tonight was broiled scallops.  This recipe came from the Live Primal Recipe collection.

For 4 servings you will need: 

1 pound sea scallops
2 Tbsp lime (can subtitute lemon) juice
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
1 1/2 tsp olive oil
black pepper to taste

1.  Coat a shallow baking pan with olive oil.  
2.  Toss scallops in lime juice, cilantro, oil and pepper.  
3.  Arrange scallops in a single layer in pan.  
4.  Broil until scallops are opaque (about 2-3 minutes), flip scallops and continue to broil until they are cooked through (about 3-4 minutes).
