Why were my seared scallops so terrible?

So I made this (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/rec...) on Friday. My first, and hopefully worst, attempt at searing scallops. When I first put them in, so much water came out that they didn't get any type of texture. Then, I took them out and did each one individually on the other side. That got a nice texture. But when I ate them, the crust tasted like pure salt. I had to cut off the crust to get anything edible. What did I do wrong? What are the secrets to searing scallops?
