Description

You’ll love the bold flavors in Garlic Lemon Butter Scallops. The beautiful sear on the outside and creamy inside are such a wonderful combination.

Ingredients

  • 12  Sea Scallops
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1  Lemon, Zest And Juice
  • 2 teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes, Or More To Taste, Divided
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • Salt And Freshly Ground Pepper, To Taste
  • Parsley, For Garnish

Preparation

Pat scallops with paper towels to try. Season both flat sides with salt and pepper.

In large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add lemon juice. Add 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes and minced garlic, and cook for 2 minutes, until garlic is fragrant.

Add scallops to skillet. Keep an eye on scallops, but don’t move them! Check after 2–3 minutes. When you see the bottom edge beginning to caramelize, carefully turn scallops over. Cook on other side for another 2–3 minutes, until bottom is caramel color. Remove scallops from skillet, and drain slightly on paper towels.

Add remaining red pepper flakes, drizzle with garlic lemon butter, and top with parsley and lemon zest. Enjoy!
