Sautéed Scallops with Rosemary and Lemon

  • FAST

If bay scallops are unavailable, use sea scallops that have been halved horizontally and then vertically.

  1. 1 1/2 pounds bay scallops, rinsed and patted dry
  2. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 2 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons whole fresh rosemary leaves
  5. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  6. 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  1. Remove and discard the iridescent membrane on each scallop.
  2. Warm the oil and garlic together in a large nonreactive skillet over moderate heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is pale golden, about 4 minutes. Raise the heat to high and stir in the rosemary. Add the scallops in a single layer, season with salt and pepper and cook until opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the scallops to a bowl.
  3. Add the lemon juice to the skillet and simmer until the liquid is reduced to a syrupy glaze. Return the scallops and any accumulated juices to the skillet and toss to coat with the glaze; cook until just heated through.
