Scallops with Rosemary Butter Sauce
4 large scallops
salt and ground pepper
2 tbsp oil
1 small shallot, finely minced
1/4 cup white wine
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp fresh rosemary, minced
1. Using paper towels, pat the scallops to remove excess water. Season on each side with salt and pepper.
2. Add the oil to a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook the scallops on each side for 2 to 3 minutes undisturbed. Remove to a serving dish.
3. Lower the heat and add the shallots. Cook for 2 minutes until softened. Add the white wine and stir well to pick up any caramelized bits at the bottom of the skillet. Stir in the butter and chopped rosemary. Pour the sauce of the cooked scallops to serve.
