Instructions
Lemon Butter Garlic Sauce
  1. Heat olive oil over medium heat. Once sizzling, add crushed red pepper and garlic and then saute for about 1-2 minutes. Do not let the garlic burn.
  2. Add 5 tbsp of butter, white cooking wine, salt and pepper. Once melted, add heavy cream and sprinkle in Parmesan cheese. Note: You should have two types of Parmesan cheese: 1) grated Parmesan cheese and 2) the Parmesan cheese like the one in pizza places that you just sprinkle on. In this step, you are using the Parmesan cheese that you just sprinkle on.
  3. Stir everything together and remove from heat once incorporated. Add grated Parmesan cheese, parsley and salt and pepper to taste. You can sprinkle in more of the other Parmesan cheese if you want more flavor.
Pan Seared Scallops
  1. Lay scallops out on a plate and pat dry with a paper napkin. Do not skip this skip this step! If your scallops have a lot of moisture, you will not get a perfect sear.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp of butter and one tbsp of olive oil in a pan.
  3. Add the scallops to the pan in a clockwise motion and let them cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Do NOT overcook the scallops. A good tip for that is to flip the scallops in the order that you put them in the pan.
  4. Remove the scallops from the pan once both sides are cooked and have a perfect sear.
Pasta
  1. Please buy real pasta for this recipe, not the boxed kind. One of my friend Laci is an amazing cook and she happens to be Italian. She put me on to using real pasta and I've been hooked ever since. I use the brand Buitoni and they sell it at most all major stores (Pubix, Target, Walmart, Kroger).
  2. Boil the pasta for about 2-3 minutes and then add it to the sauce.
  3. Top the pasta with the pan seared scallops, sprinkle with a little more parsley and enjoy!
