Sea Scallops with Lemon Butter Sauce

Select the large sea scallops for this dish. Either fresh or frozen may be used. Cooking time will be reduced when using fresh scallops.
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • Juice from 2 lemons
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb. large sea scallops
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped parsley

Begin this dish by making a roux with the butter and flour in a skillet over medium heat. Add the lemon juice and zest, stirring constantly. Next add the white wine and shallot. Stir the sauce until slightly thickened.

Finally, add the scallops and seasonings to the sauce and stir until the scallops are cooked through, about 4 minutes for fresh, 8 minutes for frozen scallops. Serve immediately and garnish with chopped parsley.

Enjoy!
