Garlic Lemon Scallops

I haven’t posted in a while, mostly because making the haul posts at 3 in the morning didn’t seem worth the effort. But somebody asked me about the blog when I mentioned all the butter I found this week so I’m going to talk about the scallops I just cooked.

I thawed them in ice water with salt and lemon juice after reading some stuff about dry and wet scallops and being pretty sure these are wet scallops because they’re pretty white. While preparing the scallops I roasted some broccoli and potatoes with shallots with olive oil, salt and pepper.

Once thawed I dried the scallops on some paper towels for about ten minutes and salted and peppered them. I just found a large jar of peppercorns the day before that somebody left on the sidewalk.

I seared the scallops in butter and oil with minced garlic (not hot enough, should have waited to flip to put the butter in, could have gotten a better sear, still good) for two minutes per side.

Served with lemon wedges and the roast vegetables.
