Yummy little recipe that capitalizes on fresh scallops. Delicious, simple and elegant.

This is a solid recipe! I enjoyed every cooking step, but there's only one thing that I probably wouldn't do next time, which is to coat the scallops with flour. I found flour left a weird texture on the scallops and seasoning became a little difficult after searing scallops. I would recommend to season the scallops with salt and pepper first, sear directly without flour, then go through the butter lemon sauce steps.
