This will make just enough for 2 people!
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 large red onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon butter
1 garlic clove
3/4 pound fresh scallops
1 to 2 teaspoons hot sauce
Heat the oil in a cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add the onion, Cajun seasoning, and pepper; sauté for about 3 minutes.
Add butter and garlic; sauté again for about 30 seconds ('till the butter melts...don't let the garlic burn!).
Add scallops; cook 1 minute or until browned.
Sprinkle with hot sauce; turn. Cook 3 minutes or until they are done.
