Brown Butter Scallops

Brown Butter Scallops are scallops that have been expertly cooked in brown butter. Juicy scallops go nicely with spaghetti. The cooking time is ten minutes.

I cook recipes that require few ingredients without losing flavor when I’m pressed for time, such as scallops.

Scallops are inherently briny and incredibly tasty; all they require is a brief sear on the skillet.

Additionally, they combine wonderfully with a straightforward pasta meal such as quick spaghetti or Parmesan garlic noodles.

These brown butter scallops that have been expertly cooked are incredible! This will take less than ten minutes to prepare, with minimal prep time.

All that is required is seasoning the scallops with salt and black pepper, grating some lemon peel on top, and garnishing them with chopped parsley after done.

The dish calls for five ingredients and takes ten minutes to prepare. It doesn’t get much simpler or more delectable than this. Appetite!
