Seared Scallops with a Lemon, Garlic and White Wine Sauce

If you love scallops, you’re going to enjoy this dish!


  • 1 lb jumbo scallops
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 gloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley


  1. Rinse scallops with cold water and pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Generously sprinkle the scallops with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. In a cast iron skillet, heat olive oil over high heat.
  4. Gently place scallops in skillet, making sure they are not touching- It took me two batches. Sear scallops for 1-2 minutes on each side or until both sides are golden brown and translucent in the middle. Try not to touch them while they are searing. Remove from skillet.
  5. Once both batches are finished, make the sauce. Reduce heat to medium-high. Carefully pour in wine to deglaze the pan,  scraping all the goodness off the bottom. Add butter, garlic and lemon juice. Stir for about 1 minute or until butter is melted. Pour sauce over scallops and garnish with parsley. Yum!!!
  6. Enjoy!!
