Seared Scallops with Pink Grapefruit-Brown Butter Sauce are ready in just 30 minutes and are pan-tastic! Just sear scallops in a skillet, and then pour on the flavor with our brown butter-citrus sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Peel grapefruit, and cut into sections with a knife. Squeeze rind and remaining pulp to yield 1/4 cup juice.

Step 2

Cook butter in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes or until it turns a golden color and smells nutty. Stir in flour; cook, whisking constantly, 1 minute. Gradually stir in grapefruit juice. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in grapefruit segments and 1/4 teaspoon each sea salt and black pepper. Pour into a bowl; cover and keep warm.

Step 3

Sprinkle scallops with remaining 1/4 teaspoon each sea salt and black pepper. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add scallops, and sear 3 minutes on each side or until scallops are browned.

Step 4

Drizzle scallops with grapefruit sauce; sprinkle with chives.

Yummy sauce for the scallops.  I would use more of the grapefruit slices, and garnished with chives makes a great presentation.   Definitely a keeper recipe!
