Hey, everyone. I'm Judith with Recipe.com, and today, I'm gonna be showing you how to make Seared Scallops with Garlic Butter, an elegant dish to serve at any dinner party. So what we're gonna need is a pound of scallops. I've got about 10 to 12 large scallops here, and we've washed these and patted them dry. We have 2 tablespoons of butter. We have 3 cloves of garlic which we've minced. We have an eighth of a teaspoon of salt. We have 2 tablespoons of dried white wine, and we have 1 tablespoon of fresh parsley. So, we're gonna get our medium skillet and get it to a medium heat, and we're gonna put in half of our butter. Split it in half here. Into the pan it goes. So as that butter is melted, let's add in our garlic, and we're gonna swivel that around for about 30 seconds. So the pan gets nice and flavorful for our scallops. Okay. So, now it's time to add our wonderful scallops. Now, in the supermarket, scallops usually come like this, but if you got fishmongers or, you know, if you're a speciality store, sometimes, they might just come on the shell, so what we'll do is we're gonna turn our scallops over for about 2 to 3 minutes. Keep turning them over so they get cooked through nicely. All right, so our scallops are just about done. Now, you can check if they're done once the scallops turn a nice opaque color. They're nice and browned on the outside, so we're gonna transfer that to our serving platter. And they are just delicious. Scallops have a slightly sweet flavor to them and they're super healthy, too, actually. They contain a lot of vitamin B12 which is very good for you. Now, with the remaining of our butter, we're gonna put it into our skillet along with our white wine, and we are just gonna take all of those loosened brown bits of garlic and mix it all in together and that is gonna be our wonderful sauce to put on top. We've melted that butter and white wine together along with our garlic and we're just gonna spread all of that over our beautiful scallops. Oh. How gorgeous does that look? There you have it, everyone. That is your Pan-Seared Scallops with Garlic Butter. Well, thanks for watching, everyone. For more great recipes and savings, go to Recipe.com.
