Bay Scallops with Scallions
4 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 pounds bay scallops
Black pepper, to taste
1 small bunch scallions, sliced
1/3 cup dry white wine
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
In a large, heavy skillet heat butter and sauté scallops seasoned with pepper very quickly until slightly browned, about 4 minutes.
Remove scallops with a slotted spoon and put on a warmed serving dish.
Sauté the scallions in the same skillet over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Do not brown.
Add wine to de-glaze the pan over high heat and cook until wine is reduced by half. Pour sauce over scallops; sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over scallops.
Serve with additional hot butter if desired.
