Seared Sea Scallops Recipe



  • 1 quart (4 cups) cold water
  • 1/4 cup of lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp table salt


  • 15 sea scallops
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp butter


  1. If you can only find “wet” scallops, soak them in a solution of 1 quart cold water, 1/4 cup lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons table salt for 30 minutes. Remove the small side muscle from the scallops. Place a towel (or a few paper towels) down on a large plate. Place the scallops on the towel then cover with an additional towel (or paper towels). Press gently to remove excess water.
  2. Add the butter to a large saute pan on medium-high heat. Season both sides of the scallops with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Once the pan is hot, gently add the scallops, making sure they are not touching each other. Sear the scallops for 1 1/2-2 minutes on each side. The scallops should have a golden crust on each side while still being translucent in the center. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
