Gourmet cooking at home is better than going out for dinner. These Brown Butter Scallops taste like a million bucks and are perfect for a romantic night in!
1 tablespoons salted butter
1 lb scallops, thawed if frozen
optional: salt & pepper
juice of 1/4 lemon ((about 2 teaspoons))
1 teaspoon parsley leaves (, chopped)
Use a paper towel to thoroughly dry the scallops.
In a large skillet, melt the butter until bubbles start to form. Add the scallops and cook over high heat for about 3 minutes, or until the scallops turn golden brown on the bottom. Season lightly with salt and pepper, if desired. Use tongs to carefully flip the scallops and cook for another 3 minutes or until scallops are fully cooked. Squeeze some lemon juice over the scallops. Remove from the skillet and garnish with chopped parsley. Serve with your favorite side dish.
