|Scallops—about 1/4 lb per person|
|Clarified butter (see recipe)|
|Minced fresh parsley|
|Lemon pepper, optional|
Dust scallops lightly with flour. Melt butter in hot skillet. Cook scallops quickly, about 1 to 1½ minutes per side. Garnish with parsley and lemon pepper, if desired.
For best taste, prepare scallops on the day of purchase.
Maintain fresh flavor by placing scallops in a covered glass dish in the coldest section of the refrigerator.
Do not allow scallops to rest on ice or in water.
