Sautéed Scallops

These Seared Scallops with Garlic and Rosemary are amazing! Simply crush the garlic with the blade of a chef’s knife rather than mince it, and use whole sprigs of rosemary so you can easily remove them before serving.

Sautéed scallops are a delicious and simple seafood dish that can be enjoyed as a main course or as an appetizer. Here’s a basic recipe for sautéed scallops:


  • 1 pound sea scallops, rinsed and patted dry
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Season the scallops with salt and pepper.
  3. Add the butter and olive oil to the skillet and swirl to coat the pan.
  4. Once the butter has melted and is hot, add the scallops to the skillet. Make sure the scallops are in a single layer and not touching each other.
  5. Cook the scallops for 2-3 minutes on one side until they are golden brown. Flip the scallops over and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes on the other side.
  6. Remove the scallops from the pan and transfer them to a plate.
  7. Serve the sautéed scallops hot, with lemon wedges on the side for squeezing over the scallops.
