The 3 S’s: Simple, Sauteed, Scallops

1 lb. fresh scallops
1/4 cup butter
2 tbsp. minced garlic
2 tbsp. fresh rosemary
1/2 tbsp. pepper
Dash of salt

In a pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the rosemary and garlic to the pan. Season scallops with pepper and a dash of salt; add to the pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side (*Do not overcook, then they taste like rubber…yuck!). Remove the garlic and rosemary from the pan. Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: This is great when you want something light and quick for dinner. Scallops can be pricey but they’re soo worth it and go great with just about anything i.e. pasta, sauteed veggies such as asparagus, green beans or even some zucchini…endless possibilities! For those of us in warmer climates try grilling them, even tastier;-)
