Seared Scallops in Garlic-Lemon Butter Sauce


Step 1Place the olive oil into a frying pan and heat over a high heat.

Step 2Turn heat back slightly and place scallops into pan, careful not to overcrowd them, cook them in batches if you need to. Cook for 3 minutes on each side without moving them around.
Note: You can use frozen scallops, just make sure that they’re completely defrosted before you cook them.

Step 3Remove from pan and sit aside.

Step 4Add 3 Tablespoons of the butter into the pan, add finely chopped garlic and cook until softened. Add chicken broth and cook until reduced and thickened slightly.

Step 5Add remaining 1 Tablespoon of butter, lemon juice and zest and chopped herbs and mix through.

Step 6Return scallops to pan and warm through. Store in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 2 days.
