Sautéed Scallops in Browned Butter-Tarragon Lemon Sauce

Recipe by Myra Kornfeld
This dish couldn’t be simpler. You sear the scallops, and while they are cooking make the fragrant brown butter sauce. Serve it with a mound of greens for a light and delicious meal.

Ingredients
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Ghee, aroma free coconut oil or Vital Choice extra virgin olive oil, to cook the scallops
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon leaves
1 ½ teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Preparation
1.  In a medium bowl, toss the scallops with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
2.  Warm a thin film of oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the scallops and sear until golden, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook the other side until golden and almost firm, about 4 minutes.
3.  While the scallops cook, make the butter sauce. Melt the butter in a small pot until golden and nutty-scented, about 4 minutes. Immediately stir in the lemon juice and the tarragon and a sprinkling salt and pepper.
4.  Remove from heat and set aside.
5.  Remove scallops from the skillet and transfer to four plates. Ladle the browned butter over the scallops. Enjoy!
