What do you cook on Fridays?

Scallops are expensive, but you can get a bag of them at Costco and cut the scallops in half, to stretch them further. This is what we had last night. This sauce is absolutely delicious because you are scraping up all the delicious bits of scallops into flavoring the sauce. Two or three scallops is more than enough per serving. I toss cooked spaghetti in with the sauce and serve with a salad and a slice of homemade bread to soak up any remaining sauce.

Seared Lemon Garlic Butter Scallops

Have Crispy Lemon Garlic Butter Scallops on your table in less than 10 minutes, coated in a deliciously silky lemon garlic butter sauce! Cheaper than going out to a restaurant and just as good as chef made scallops! They are the ultimate treat!

Ingredients
* 1 Tablespoons olive oil
* 0.63 pounds (600 grams) scallops
* 1.5 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
* 2-2.5 large garlic cloves, minced (or 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic)
* Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
* 0.13 cup dry white wine or broth
* 1 tablespoons lemon juice
* 0.13 cup chopped parsley
Instructions
* Heat olive oil in a large pan or skillet over medium-high heat until hot and sizzling. Add the scallops in a single layer without over crowding the pan (work in batches if needed). 
Season with salt and pepper to taste and fry for 2-3 minutes on one side (until a golden crust forms underneath), then flip and fry again for 2 minutes until crisp, lightly browned and cooked through (opaque). Remove from skillet and transfer to a plate.
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in the same pan, scraping up any browned bits left over from the scallops. Add in the garlic and cook until fragrant (1 minute).
Pour in wine (or broth) and bring to a simmer for 2 minutes or until wine reduces by about half. Stir in the remaining tablespoon of butter and lemon juice.
* Remove pan (skillet) from the heat; add the scallops back into the pan to warm through slightly and garnish with parsley. 
Serve over rice, pasta, garlic bread or steamed vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini noodles).
