Thaw scallops, if frozen. Rinse scallops, remove beards; pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle scallops with Black Magic Cajun Spice Blend and set aside.
In a large skillet combine oil, butter, and thyme. Cook and stir over medium heat until butter is melted. Increase to high and add the scallops. Sear for 3-4 minutes per side. Remove thyme and add sherry. Cook for 1 minute.
Serve immediately with lemon wedges and crusty bread to soak up the pan jus.
