- Pat sea scallops dry with paper towels. Season with some lemon juice, salt, and pepper on one side.
- Heat olive oil and butter in a skillet over high heat. Place scallops in the skillet seasoned-side down. Cook until browned on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Season with remaining lemon juice, salt, and pepper; flip. Continue cooking until opaque, about 2 minutes more. Garnish with lemon zest.
- Cook's Note:
- Make sure the scallops are dry; they will sear better. Also, once the scallops are placed in the pan, do not move them until it is time to flip them over. Again this keeps a good sear.

Perfect basic technique. Make sure scallops are dry. I added some fresh Rosemary to the initial oil heating. Loved them!
I used bay scallops and just sauteed them in a wok! Came out amazing!! Add Old Bay Seasoning!
This is a quick and easy way to make scallops. We all loved them and I am not much of a seafood person. Perfect.
