These were very tasty and not difficult to make. The lemon adds a nice touch. Scallops sauteed in butter and garlic will melt in your mouth. Lemon juice gives it a nice kick. Made this for dinner last night and we were pleasantly surprised with the results. A recipe thats oh so simple, but oh so delicious! I followed it exactly and I wouldn’t change a thing. What an excellent dish this is to serve to your sweetheart. My husband made all those “mmmm good” sounds as he ate, and he’s somewhat picky when it comes to seafood recipes. I will definitely be making these again!
Melt in Your Mouth Garlic Lemon Scallops
- ¾ cup butter
- 3 tablespoons minced garlic
- 2 pounds large sea scallops
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic, and cook for a few seconds until fragrant. Add scallops, and cook for several minutes on one side, then turn over, and continue cooking until firm and opaque.
Remove scallops to a platter, then whisk salt, pepper, and lemon juice into butter. Pour sauce over scallops to serve.
