Scallops with Herb Butter Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2-3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 lb. sea scallops
  • dry white wine
  • salt and pepper
  1. Melt butter over medium heat in a non-stick skillet.
  2. Add two sprigs fresh thyme to melted butter for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Salt and pepper scallops, then place in the skillet.
  4. Cook scallops for 1-2 minutes, then gently flip.
  5. Deglaze the pan with a splash or two of dry white wine.
  6. Cook scallops for one minute, spooning butter wine sauce over the top.
  7. Remove from heat, sprinkle with chopped fresh thyme before serving.
Scallops take only a couple of minutes to cook — any longer, and they become tough and rubbery. Add them to a hot skillet so the bottom forms a caramelized crust, flip after 1-2 minutes.
