Ingredients

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons seasoning salt

  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano

  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme

  • 2 tablespoons lemon pepper

  • 16 sea scallops, rinsed and drained

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, divided

  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice, divided

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, oregano, thyme and lemon pepper. Roll scallops in flour mixture until lightly coated on all sides.

  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet or frying pan over high heat. Add 4 scallops to the pan and sear on all sides (about 2 minutes for each side). After turning scallops, add 1 tablespoon parsley and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Remove scallops from pan and place on a plate in the oven to keep warm until ready to serve.

  3. Repeat until remaining scallops are cooked, tossing each batch with parsley and lemon juice.

Cook's Note:

I have also added Parmesan cheese to these while they are in the oven, which adds another flavor dimension.
