Scallops in Garlic Butter


  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds scallops
  • 3 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 5 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel


  1. Rinse scallops and pat dry; then cut any large scallops in half. Set aside.
  2. Place a wok over medium heat; when wok is hot, add almonds and stir until golden (about 2 minutes). Pour out of wok and set aside.
  3. Add butter. When butter is melted, add garlic, parsley and lemon peel and stir for about 1 minute.
  4. Add scallops (a portion at a time, if necessary) and stir fry just until opaque throughout; cut to test (3 to 4 minutes).
  5. Transfer scallop mixture to a platter. Top with almonds and serve immediately.

Serves 4.
