If you’re a seafood lover, and delight in the delicate flavor and texture of a perfectly cooked scallop. Then you also know that scallops on their own are quite bland. It’s what you marinate or cook them with, that really turns them into a seafood lovers feast.
Lemon and capers are two of the most flavor packed ingredients, and when paired with a brown butter sauce…oh so good!
If you’ve never had brown butter before, it has a concentrated deep and nutty flavor. It’s made by lightly simmering butter until its milk solids and salt particles have turned brown (stirring continuously), and all water has been evaporated out.

- Depending on size, sauté scallops for 3-5 minutes in 1 Tbsp brown butter, season with salt and pepper. Do not overcook, or they will become rubbery. Set aside.
- Heat remaining butter over med-high heat and add remaining ingredients. Break up lemon segments and stir until liquid is slightly reduced.
- Add scallops, stirring to coat, then serve.
