How to Make Grilled Scallops

  1. Preparation of scallops: If you're using frozen scallops, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight. If the scallops are fresh, simply rinse them under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Cooking the scallops: Season the scallops on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat a pan over medium heat and add the butter. Once the butter starts to sizzle, add the scallops to the pan. Sear them for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  3. Adding garlic: Add the minced garlic to the pan and cook for another 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent the garlic from burning.
  4. Adding lemon: Remove the pan from the heat and squeeze the juice from the lemon directly onto the scallops. Stir to ensure the scallops are evenly coated with the juice.
  5. Serving: Serve the scallops hot, sprinkled with fresh parsley. They pair excellently with white wine and fresh baguette.

Enjoy your meal!
