This quick and easy Pan Seared Scallops with Lemon Garlic Butter recipe is a restaurant worthy meal that will wow your guests at home. Scallops are a delicious meal that come together in about 10 minutes so you spend less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying your friends.
Sea scallops are the ultimate in healthy indulgence and this recipe is perfect for highlighting just that. Imagine this, sweet scallops with a caramelized crust coated in a lusciously rich lemon garlic butter sauce. Yeah, our mouths are watering too. We served it here with an al dente spaghetti that perfectly complements the tender scallops in this velvety butter sauce.
Here at Sizzlefish, our scallops are harvested off the coast of Nantucket Island, MA. We dry pack these scallops, meaning they are shucked and then frozen without soaking in water or preservative solutions before freezing. This ensures that you are getting a sweet natural scallop that caramelizes beautifully due to the fact that it’s not holding on to added water.
Scallops don’t have to be scary. If fact, they are really easy to prepare as long as you follow a few steps to get that beautifully browned sear. While our sea scallops are dry packed, you will notice that they have a milky watery liquid when they are thawed. This is a completely natural enzyme from the shucking process. To get that golden brown caramelization, just make sure you thoroughly dry the sea scallops and then give them a light dusting of flour before sauteing them.
