Hey all! We had a fantastic Labor Day weekend, and I hope you did too. The coastal storm that was promised stayed away completely here in NJ and we had gorgeous weather. Since the weather forecast was rainy, Aldo and I didn’t have any BBQ plans so we had the weekend to ourselves to relax. And since the weather turned out beautiful, we got to spend lots of time outdoors – we went hiking on Saturday and then had a picnic and outdoor nap at the park on Sunday. On Monday we had ourselves a lovely romantic dinner at home.

I made these Brown Butter Scallops for dinner and served them with roasted spiralized potatoes and steamed broccoli that has been tossed in the Brown Butter sauce from the scallops. The whole combination was absolutely delicious, especially with a glass of chilled, crisp white wine. It was the perfect way for us to end a long holiday weekend together.

Scallops is one of those ingredients that is so expensive in restaurants yet so easy to cook at home. Because of this, we usually cook scallops at home, so we can eat more than 3 tiny pieces and have it not cost $28 per plate. This Brown Butter Scallop recipe couldn’t be easier – just heat some butter in a pan until it starts browning, throw in some scallops to brown on both sides and bam! – done in 5 minutes. SO decadent, so delicious. So many ”So’s” in this paragraph. 🙂

Brown Butter Scallops

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Cook Time: 8 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 lb scallops
  • Optional: Salt & Pepper
  • Juice of 1/4 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon parsley leaves, chopped

Instructions

  1. Use a paper towel to dry the scallops.
  2. In a large skillet, melt the butter and add the scallops. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until the butter bubbles and starts turning brown, and the scallops turn golden brown on the bottom. Season lightly with salt and pepper, if desired. Use tongs to carefully flip the scallops and cook for another 2 minutes or until scallops are fully cooked. Squeeze some lemon juice over the scallops. Remove from the skillet and garnish with chopped parsley.

Notes

Add some steamed/boiled broccoli to the remaining lemon-butter sauce and saute for 2-3 minutes until the broccoli is heated through and covered in delicious lemony brown butter sauce.

To make the spiralized potatoes: spiralize 2 medium potatoes and toss with olive oil, salt, and chili powder. Roast at 350F for about 15 minutes, or until potatoes are fully cooked.

  1. Hmmm, I’ve never cooked them. It seems really easy. And I like your “many so’s” sentence.
