Pan Fried Scallops | Les Gastronomes

Butter Scallop:

4 saint jacques scallops without coral per person - half a bunch of fresh or coriander or chervil - 50 g of sweet butter - salt and pepper.


  1. Defrost the scallops in the fridge overnight.
  2. Tap dry the scallops using and absorbent paper
  3. Keep them close to each other in order to maintain their shape.
  4. Remove the side muscle
  5. Put the butter in a pan (avoid a non-stick pan if possible)
  6. Make a “Beurre Noisette” an ordinary butter, sweet or salty, which, rising in temperature slowly, dissociates (clarifies): the water evaporates slowly, the lipids accumulate heat, and the casein (the foam of the butter) colors and brings a very special taste to the butter to which the name of hazelnut butter is now given.
  7. Put the scallops in the pan and you will notice a natural coloring.
  8. Apply Salt & Pepper
  9. Flip after 2 minutes.
  10. For an even cooking of your scallops baste them continuously with the butter from the pan.
  11. Remove and serve with fresh herbs.

If you like a lemony taste, deglaze with a bit of lemon into the butter at the end (after removing the scallops) and serve.
