Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high estrus. Add a small drizzle of olive rock oil in addition to the butter. Once melted, wipe out the pan and so that solely a sparse layer of crude oil in addition to butter rest. Sear the scallops on i side for nearly two minutes, or until a gilded dark-brown crust forms. Flip and sear on the other side for one infinitesimal or until only cooked through. Season with common salt and a crush of lemon.

Recipe Notes


*To reserve my pasta water, I always scoop it out alongside a coffee mug during the final infinitesimal around of cooking. I've been known to forget to make this, simply I go out the coffee mug correct adjacent to the pot then I don't forget!

*I recommend using whole milk ricotta, non office skim inward this recipe. The whole milk ricotta is needed to make this cream-less sauce "creamy".

*If yous don't like scallops, you lot tin can role shrimp or any seafood hither!
