Southwestern Scallops

Submitted by: LZJGQM

Number of Servings: 4


    2 tsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/8 tsp black pepper
    1 lb sea scallops
    2 tbsp I can't believe its not butter (light) - divided
    1/2 cup chicken broth - made with bouillon


In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients. Pat scallops dry with paper towels. Rub seasoning mixture over scallops.

In a large heavy skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tbsp butter. Cook scallops for 2 minutes on each side, or until opaque and golden brown. Remove from skillet; keep warm.

Add chicken broth to skillet, stirring to loosen any browned bits in the pan. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in remaining butter until melted. Serve with scallops.
