My husband loves scallops and when I cooked this super easy dish recently, he loved it and thought I’d been cooking for hours; he liked it better than when he’s had scallops at expensive restaurants.

It’s really quick and only has a few ingredients. So why pay big bucks for seafood at fancy restaurants when you can whip something up at home in about 10 minutes?

scallops with lemon butter recipe
Instructions
  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  2. After washing and drying the scallops, add them to the skillet in a single layer (if they won't all fit, add in batches). Cook for 2-3 minutes per side (until golden brown and translucent). When cooked, remove scallops and set aside to keep warm.
  3. To make the sauce, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the skillet and add garlic. Stir garlic frequently for about 1 minute. Add lemon juice and season with paprika and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in scallops and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
