Seared Scallops with Garlic, lemon and parsley
Cooking time – 5 minutes.
- 8 scallops
- 1 lemon
- Splash olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic – crushed
- 50g butter
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Heat olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat.
Add scallops and fry over a medium heat for 1 minute on each side.
Add butter and garlic into the pan; continue to cook for 1 more minute
Remove the pan from the heat, and squeeze ½ lemon over the scallops and sprinkle in the parsley.
Remove scallops and serve drizzled with the juices from the pan.
Larger scallops may need a slightly longer cooking time, but be sure not to overcook the scallops, as this will affect their delicate texture.
