These little sea spuds are bursting with flavor.
- ¾ cup butter
- 3 tablespoons minced garlic
- 2 pounds large sea scallops
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon pepper
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
In a big skillet on medium-high heat, melt the butter and stir in the garlic. Let that stuff cook for a few seconds until it turns fragrant. Add in the scallops and cook for several minutes on each side. They should be firm and opaque.
Move the scallops over to a platter, then whisk the salt, pepper, and lemon juice into the leftover butter to make a sauce. Pour the sauce over the scallops and serve.
