Garlic Scallops

Here is a quick and simple starter dish that I will be serving Christmas day.


1 lb. large scallops

½ a stick of unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly

5 cloves garlic, minced

1 large lemon zested

Handful of Italian parsley, chopped and stems removed

Salts and Pepper to taste

Red Pepper Flakes to taste

A pinch of sweet paprika

Avocado Oil


Make sure to pat dry the scallops on paper towels very well before cooking.

Place scallops in a large bowl and drizzle with avocado oil and 1/4 the melted butter, toss to coat and sprinkle with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes

In a large skillet over medium high heat place.

Working in batches, sear the scallops about 2 minutes on each side. Place in a deep serving dish. Now add the butter to skillet, reduce heat, add garlic and sauté until infused about 1 minute. Remove from heat, add lemon zest, paprika and parsley, stir and pour over scallops – serve – enjoy.
