Scallops w/corn and cilantro salad

I love scallops. I absolutely adore them. If there are scallops on the menu, I'm always tempted to order them.

This is a quick and easy way to prepare them:
Pat scallops dry. Heat olive oil in nonstick skillet. Place scallops in pan not touching one another. Dash of salt, cracked pepper, cook 2-3 min on each side. Bon appetite!
