One thought on “Seared Scallops With Lemon Cream Sauce

  1. Scallops are sweet and delicate- they can easily be over-cooked, so be careful with your heat. The accompanying sauce is sweet, creamy and delicious.

    Prep time: 30 minutes

    Serves 4-6

    Ingredients:

    1 dozen fresh, large sea scallops

    3 tablespoons butter

    1 teaspoon kosher salt

    1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

    Directions:

    Place a medium sized stainless steel skillet on the stove over medium high heat. Add the 3 tablespoons of butter.

    Place the large sea scallops on a clean plate, and season both sides with salt and pepper.

    Place the scallops, one at a time into the hot skillet. Sauté the scallops for a few minutes on each side until they become golden brown- make sure not to overcook the delicate seafood. Cook the remaining scallops, set aside.
