“This is a simple, straight-forward way to prepare fresh bay scallops without distracting from their natural sweetness. The larger sea scallops would work just as well here.”

Directions

  1. Wash the scallops in cold water. Spread on paper towels to dry. Put flour in a small bowl. Toss scallops in flour to coat completely.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over low heat. Add the scallops and pan fry 3 to 4 minutes, moving and turning, until they are firm but not browned. Add garlic and parsley and cook 30 seconds longer.
  3. Remove to a serving plate and squeeze lemon juice over scallops and season with salt and pepper.
