Seared Scallops with Mediterranean Herb Butter

Serve with sauteed vegetables for a healthy meal!

Ingredients

Directions:

Get your saute pan hot and add 2 Tbsp. oil to pan (oil should begin to smoke). Place scallops, all flat side down, in hot oil, (don't shake pan, this will allow the scallops to caramelize, 2 to 3 minutes). Flip scallops over and sear other side, 1 to 2 minutes.

Remove pan from heat and stir in 2 Tablespoons Mediterranean Herb Butter. Toss scallops in pan to coat with butter.

Note:
Mediterranean Herb butter (Greek herb butter) is made with fresh herbs and olive oil. You can use fresh oregano, parsley, thyme, sage, and marjoram.

To prepare:
Chop up the fresh herbs and add a pinch of cayenne pepper, minched garlic and a few shakes of coarse black pepper. Mix together in small bowl. In a bottle, add 3 to 4 tablespoons of herb mixture and approximately 1/2 cup olive oil.

Herb butter is great when poured on a plate and served with a nice loaf of crusty bread for dunking.

Please note that some ingredients and brands may not be available in every store.
