Super Simple Scallops

Scallops are my favorite food, I love them just seasoned with some salt and pepper. They are super fast and easy to make. Pairs well with a buttery chardonnay like Buttercream.

Makes 1 Serving, Nutrition Information per serving: 320 calories, 4g Net Carbs, 4g Fat, 68g Protein

(Note: I do not include the butter in the nutrition info since it stays in the pan after scallops are cooked)


  • 16oz. Raw Sea Scallops (I use Butcher Box)
  • 3 Tbsp Butter
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Use a medium size frying pan set on med/high heat
  • Melt butter in pan until just sizzling
  • Make sure the scallops are very dry so they brown nicely
  • Add scallops to pan, leave for about 3-4 minutes so they develop a nice brown sear, flip over and cook for an additional 2-4 minutes or until done, 145 degrees.
  • Remove to plate, allow to cool for 2-3 minutes, and enjoy!
