Seared Scallops with Lemon Butter Sauce

There are a couple of things I am scared to make for dinner. A roast. It is such a large piece of meat. I find it intimidating. The other dish is scallops. Chris loves scallops and they are so easy to overcook. They have been a stressful dish for me to try. Until now...

These scallops, which were on sale at Big Y this week (!!), are the only way I will cook scallops from this day forward. 10 minutes!!! The sear was spot on. The cook was, even Gordon Ramsey would say, A Perfect 10!!!

 I found this recipe on the Completely Delish site.
Seared Scallops with Lemon Butter Sauce
1 lb large sea scallops
Salt and pepper
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
Juice of half a lemon

Pat scallops dry with a paper towel and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
Melt butter in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Add thyme.
Add scallops seasoned side down and cook without disturbing for 3-4 minutes until well browned.
Flip scallops over and cook until browned, about 2-3 minutes. While scallops are cooking, spoon the butter over the tops to infuse more flavor.
Squeeze lemon juice over the scallops and serve.
