PAN-SEARED LEMON AND GARLIC SCALLOPS



Pan-Seared Lemon and Garlic Scallops image

Scallops have a reputation for being hard to cook correctly, but this recipe is really fast, easy, and oh so tasty. The key is high heat for the sear, a good nonstick pan, and clarified butter. Pairs well with risotto.

Number Of Ingredients 6

12 medium sea scallops
1 teaspoon salt, or more to taste
5 tablespoons clarified butter (ghee), warm

LEMON BUTTERED SEARED SCALLOPS



Lemon Buttered Seared Scallops image

Provided by Valerie Bertinelli

Categories     main-dish

Time 55m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 pound dry sea scallops (12 to 15 scallops), side muscles removed
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons Compound Lemon Butter, recipe follows
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tablespoon lemon zest plus 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Steps:

  • Place the scallops on a paper towel-lined sheet tray and pat dry. Sprinkle the scallops with salt and pepper.
  • Preheat a large nonstick saute pan on medium-high heat, then add the oil and heat until shimmering. Add the scallops and sear on one side until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Gently turn the scallops over and add the Lemon Butter, basting the scallops by gently spooning the melting butter over the top, for about 1 minute.
  • Add the wine and lemon juice and allow the scallops to simmer until they are cooked through, another 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the scallops to a platter and sprinkle with the chives.
  • Combine the butter, lemon zest, lemon juice and salt in a medium bowl and stir until smooth. Spoon the butter onto the lower third of a piece of plastic wrap. Fold the plastic wrap over the butter and use a spatula to compress the butter into a log about 5 inches long and 2 inches wide. Twist both ends of the plastic wrap to seal the butter inside. Refrigerate the butter until firm, at least 30 minutes, before using.
