DH and I really enjoyed this dish...what's not to enjoy. We love scallops, lemon, butter and parsley!!! Definately a keeper and one I will make again. Followed the instructions. Thank you for posting. Made for My 3 Chefs October 2013 tag game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. Dredge scallops in flour mixture and shake off excess.
  2. In a large heavy skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium high heat. Add scallops and cook, turning occasionally, until golden brown on the outside and opaque inside.
  3. Remove to a plate. Reduce heat to low. Add remaining butter and cook, stirring up brown bits until melted, about 1 minute.
  4. Whisk in lemon juice and parsley. Spoon over scallops and garnish with lemon wedges.
