Quick Pan-Seared Scallops
A quick and simple seafood main dish fit for company is sea scallops seared with shallot and lemon juice and garnished with fresh parsley.

A big skillet with medium heat is used to heat the olive oil.

Add shallot and stir for 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Pour in the lemon juice and cook for 3 minutes, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.

In the skillet, space the scallops 1/2 inch apart.

Cook for about 1 minute, or until the bottom is browned.

After flipping, cook for another minute or so, or until the second side is well-browned.

Add salt and pepper after moving the scallops to a serving plate.

Parsley is a garnish.
