In case you're serving them with pasta, vegetables or rice, ensure they are prepared before cooking the scallops. Basil adds a dazzling sweetness to the margarine sauce, yet on the off chance that it isn't accessible, a couple of new thyme sprigs will work.

Makes 4 servings, 3 huge scallops each


12 expansive ocean scallops, 1/4 to 1/2 pounds

2 teaspoons universally handy flour, discretionary, see notes

Salt and crisp ground dark pepper

2 tablespoons oil, for example, olive oil, avocado oil or grape seed oil

1/2 tablespoons margarine

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 glass crisp basil leaves

1-Use a paper towel to congratulate the scallops dry. Residue one side of the scallops with a little measure of flour, and after that season with salt and pepper.

5-Add the spread and garlic to the dish, and after that twirl the margarine around the container as it softens. Cook one more moment or two at that point remove the skillet from the warmth. Mix in the basil leaves and lemon cuts. Serve.
