Sautéed Bay Scallops with Lemon and Thyme

Recipe Ingredients for Sautéed Bay Scallops with Lemon and Thyme

200 grams fresh bay scallops
1 Salt
1 Pepper
1 tablespoons butter (divided into two pieces)
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoons minced shallot
2 tablespoons white wine
1 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon chopped thyme

Recipe Directions for Sautéed Bay Scallops with Lemon and Thyme

  1. Rinse scallops and pat dry. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  2. Add oil and 1 tablespoon butter to a large skillet; heat over medium high heat about 1 minute. Add scallops to pan, a few at a time, cooking 1-2 minute per side or until they are golden brown on the outside but still translucent in the middle. Place scallops on a heated platter and cover with foil.

  3. Return skillet to burner and add shallots and cook for about 2 minutes. Add wine, lemon juice and thyme to pan and cook another 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in remaining tablespoon of butter. Return scallops to the pan and toss with the sauce. Serve immediately.

  4. Note: You can sauté scallops in olive oil or other oil only; adding some butter, however, gives them a nice golden brown color.
