Scallops Sauteed With Garlic Butter Sauce
(Coquilles Saint-Jacques it la Provencale)
What You Need:
  • 2 pounds whole bay scallops, or sea scallops cut into ¼-inch slices
  • White pepper
  • Flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 quarter-pound stick)
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 lemon, quartered

  • How To Cook:
    1. Wash the scallops in cold water and dry them with paper towels. Season them with salt and pepper; then dip them in flour and shake them in a sieve or colander to remove all but a light dusting of flour. In a 10- to 12-inch enameled or stainless-steel skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter with the oil over moderate heat.

    2. When the foam subsides, saute the scallops in two batches so they are not crowded in the pan, shaking the skillet and stirring the scallops until they are lightly browned. With a slotted spoon or spatula, transfer the scallops to a heated platter.

    3. GARLIC BUTTER: In a 1½ - to 2-quart saucepan, clarify 8 tablespoons of butter by melting it slowly, skimming off the foam. Spoon the clear butter on top into a 6- to 8-inch skillet and discard the milky solids at the bottom of the pan. Heat the butter until it sizzles, but do not let it brown.

    4. Remove it from the heat and quickly stir in the garlic. Pour the garlic butter over the scallops and serve at once, garnished with chopped parsley and lemon quarters.
