Recipe: Herb Butter Scallops

[ 0 ] August 11, 2009 |

1 lb. bay scallops

1/4 cup sweet, unsalted butter

1 clove garlic (minced)

1/2 tbsp. fresh basil

1/2 tbsp. fresh parsley

Salt (to taste)

White Pepper (to taste)

Saute scallops in garlic and butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add in the fresh herbs as they brown lightly. Add in only enough scallops to cook evenly (*Do Not Crowd or Overcook). Should take 5 minutes per batch to cook. Season with salt and pepper. Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: Serve scallops on top of your favorite pasta and with a good glass of wine. Please be careful to not overcook…nothings worse then dry, rubbery scallops from being overcooked.
