Servings: 2 to 3
If you’re looking for a dish that’s as easy as it is romantic, look no further. Seared scallops are quick-cooking, sweet, tender, mild, and delectable. Make these for Valentine’s Day dinner and you and the dish will be irresistible. For a change of pace, try these same seared scallops with Spicy Coconut Curry Sauce or Spicy Red Pepper & Cilantro Sauce.
Serve with an Arugula & Fennel Salad with Orange & Fennel Seed Dressing & Toasted Hazelnuts and Real Chocolate Mousse for dessert.
Be sure to have all your ingredients prepped for the sauce (shallots diced, herbs chopped) before you begin searing the scallops

Simple but delicious recipe. I used chives and parsley and Meyer lemons for the zest and wedges. If you love scallops, you can't go wrong with this recipe.
Great melding of flavors and I especially benefited from video (slow melting of butter). Simple and easy
Thank you for the wonderful directions! Never cooked scallops before, but made these for our 48th anniversary and they were a huge success. My husband said they were the best scallops he'd ever had!
Are you kidding simply the best ever. If you dint try this you are crazy. Instead of Vermouth I used a hot pepper wine the reduced beautifully and not tangy at all. DELICIOUS!!!
