  1. In a large skillet, cook butter over medium heat until golden brown and most of the foam has subsided. Stir frequently. This will take about 4 minutes.
  2. Transfer the butter to a small bowl. Stir in pecans and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Season scallops with salt and pepper. Heat same skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add half of scallops and cook until browned and opaque in the center. Flip scallops once or twice. They will cook in only a few minutes.
  4. Divide baby greens among four serving plates. Top with cooked scallops. Spoon butter mixture over scallops.
