The most amazing scallops you will ever eat. They are buttery and silky and delicious!
Wash and dry the scallops. Remove muscle on side of scallop if you prefer. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.
In a large skillet heat butter over medium heat.
Once butter is melted add scallops to skillet. Squeeze lemon juice over scallops. Cook on each side for about 5 minutes depending on how thick they are. There should be no pink left.
