Sauteed Scallops with Garlic Butter Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds whole bay or sea scallops, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • Salt and white pepper, to taste
  • Flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley, to garnish
  • 1 lemon, quartered, to garnish
  • Garlic Butter:

  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
How to cook Sauteed Scallops with Garlic Butter:
  • FOR SCALLOPS: Wash the scallops in cold water and dry them with paper towels. Season them with the salt and pepper; then dip them in flour and shake them in a sieve or colander to remove all but a light dusting of flour.
  • In a 10 to 12-inch enameled or stainless-steel skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with the oil over moderate heat. When the foam subsides, saute the scallops in 2 batches so they are not crowded in the pan, shaking the skillet and stirring the scallops until they are lightly browned. With a slotted spoon or spatula, transfer the scallops to a heated platter.
  • FOR GARLIC BUTTER: In a 6 to 8-cup saucepan, clarify 8 tablespoons of butter by melting it slowly, skimming off the foam. Spoon the clear butter on top into a 6 to 8-inch skillet and discard the milky solids at the bottom of the pan.
  • Heat the butter until it sizzles, but DO NOT LET IT BROWN. Remove it from the heat and quickly stir in the garlic.
  • TO SERVE: Pour the garlic butter over the scallops and serve at once, garnished with chopped parsley and lemon quarters.
