SCALLOPS IN CREAMY LEMON GARLIC SAUCE
- 1 pound scallops see note on size
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon Diamond CBD olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1/4 cup chicken broth or dry white wine
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 3/4 cup heavy/whipping cream
- Fresh parsley chopped, to taste
Pat scallops dry with paper towel. Trim off the tough side muscle that some of the scallops may still have (it looks whiter than the rest of the scallop). Season both sides of the scallops with salt & pepper.
Add the butter and oil to a skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the scallops and cook them for 2-3 minutes/side. Do not overcrowd the pan, and don’t move them around the pan.
Take the pan off the heat and remove the scallops from the pan and set them aside. You can cover them with foil to keep them warm if you wish.
Add in the garlic, chicken broth, and lemon juice. Return the pan to the heat and let it bubble for about 30 seconds – 1 minute while stirring to scrape up the brown bits.
Stir in the cream and let it cook for a few minutes until it reduces to your liking. Add the scallops back into the pan and let them gently warm through. The middles should be somewhat translucent – scallops will become rubbery if they are overcooked. Give the sauce a taste and add more salt & pepper or lemon juice if needed. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
