Skillet Sea Scallops Recipe

  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound sea scallops
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  1. Combine bread crumbs and salt in a large resealable plastic bag. Add scallops, a few at a time, and shake to coat. Repeat with remaining scallops.
  2. Melt butter in olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; fry scallops until browned and opaque, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer scallops to a plate and keep warm.
  3. Stir wine, lemon juice, parsley, and garlic into skillet and bring to a boil. Simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour lemon-wine sauce over scallops to serve.
