Scallops are one of the easiest things to make! But it is also very easy to over cook them, so never stop paying attention to them on the stove top! This is a great blend of flavours for scallops. You can serve this with a fresh linguini or fettucini.
-10 Large sea scallops
-1 tbsp thyme, plus more for garnish
-1/4-1/2 c white wine (your favourite white wine. i used Lamberti.)
-sea salt and fresh ground pepper
In a small bowl mix together your butter and your thyme. Pat your scallops dry with a paper towel. season one side of the scallops with salt and pepper. Get a pan going over med-high heat. Add in the thyme butter and let melt. once the pan is hot, add your scallops seasoned side down. Season the the other side of the scallops. Sear the scallops, and then flip them in the same order you placed them in the pan. Sear. Right before the scallops are finished cooking, add in a splash of wine and reduce. Remove scallops from the heat directly on to a serving plate. Garnish with thyme, and serve.
*This process literally only takes minutes. As soon as your scallops are browned on both sides, they are done.
