  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds sea scallops, rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon salt to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon



  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Season scallops with salt and pepper. Place half of the scallops in the skillet without crowding; cook until browned, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Remove scallops to a plate. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 tablespoon butter in the skillet, and cook remaining scallops. Remove to plate.
  2. Wipe out skillet, and return skillet to medium heat. Pour in wine, and boil 1 or 2 minutes, until reduced to about 2 tablespoons.
