Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 pounds scallops, about 24
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Directions:

  1. Remove the small side muscle from the scallops, rinse with cold water and thoroughly pat dry.
  2. Season scallops with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Working in batches, add scallops to the skillet in a single layer and cook, flipping once, until golden brown and translucent in the center, about 1-2 minutes per side. Set aside and keep warm.
  4. Reduce heat to medium low; melt remaining 5 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the butter starts to foam. Add garlic and thyme to the skillet, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  5. Return scallops to the skillet; spoon butter over scallops for 1 minute.
  6. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.
