    U-10 Scallops
    Unsalted butter
    Lemon wedges, if desired.


Having the skillet hot is key for this recipe. Scallops should be caramel-colored.


Heat a non-stick skillet on medium-high heat. Skillet is ready when flicks of water dance and evaporate on surface.

Add butter, swirling quickly as butter melts and browns.

Place scallops in skillet. Cook for 3 minutes. Turn, swirling pan enough so that raw side of scallop can cook in melted butter. Cook another 3 minutes.

Remove from heat, allowing to rest for 3-5 minutes.

Serve with lemon wedges if desired.
