Seared Scallops with Mediterranean Herb Butter

Serve with sauteed vegetables for a healthy meal!



Get your saute pan hot and add 2 Tbsp. oil to pan (oil should begin to smoke). Place scallops, all flat side down, in hot oil, (don't shake pan, this will allow the scallops to caramelize, 2 to 3 minutes). Flip scallops over and sear other side, 1 to 2 minutes.

Remove pan from heat and stir in 2 Tablespoons Mediterranean Herb Butter. Toss scallops in pan to coat with butter.

Mediterranean Herb butter (Greek herb butter) is made with fresh herbs and olive oil. You can use fresh oregano, parsley, thyme, sage, and marjoram.

To prepare:
Chop up the fresh herbs and add a pinch of cayenne pepper, minched garlic and a few shakes of coarse black pepper. Mix together in small bowl. In a bottle, add 3 to 4 tablespoons of herb mixture and approximately 1/2 cup olive oil.

Herb butter is great when poured on a plate and served with a nice loaf of crusty bread for dunking.
