Date night quarantine style? I got you covered 😎. Get ready to up your seafood ante with these pan seared lemon garlic butter scallops!
Whenever we go out (use to go out, #precovid) somewhere fancy, Dan and I always seem to order scallops. Not the drenched in cream kind, but the simple, butter, zesty, garlicky kind with a sprig of green and lemon slice.
IMO that's all there is to a good scallop - the simpler the better. Honestly that's my general rule for seafood and I'm sticking with it!
On that note, that's really all there is to these seared lemon garlic butter scallops. The scallops themselves take literally 5 minutes in the pan. Not per side, total. And then throw in some butter, lemon juice, white wine, fresh herbs, and garlic. Whisk for a couple minutes.
Aaaaand done! Drizzle the sauce on top of your golden crusted scallops and serve with a couple lemon slices. If you want to get real fancy, maybe whip up a little parmesan risotto for extra yums.
