Pan-Seared Scallops with Lemon Butter Sauce:


  • 1 lb dry scallops (approximately 10 large scallops)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup white wine (optional)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. Pat the scallops dry with paper towels to ensure a good sear. Season both sides of the scallops with salt and pepper.

  2. In a large skillet or frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of butter and the olive oil over medium-high heat.

  3. Once the pan is hot, carefully add the scallops to the pan, making sure they are not touching each other. Allow them to cook undisturbed for about 2-3 minutes until a golden crust forms.

  4. Flip the scallops and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes on the other side until they are just cooked through but still tender in the center. Be cautious not to overcook them.

  5. Remove the scallops from the pan and set them aside on a plate.

  6. In the same pan, add the remaining tablespoon of butter and minced garlic. Sauté for about 30 seconds until the garlic becomes fragrant.

  7. If using white wine, add it to the pan and let it simmer for a minute to deglaze and reduce slightly.

  8. Stir in the lemon juice and chopped parsley, allowing the sauce to come together.

  9. Pour the lemon butter sauce over the scallops and serve immediately.

Serve the pan-seared scallops with lemon butter sauce alongside your favorite side dishes, such as sautéed vegetables, risotto, or a fresh salad. The simplicity of this preparation allows the natural flavors of the dry scallops to shine, making it an elegant and delicious dish.
