This is one recipe where the butter adds a lot of the flavor and I would not suggest substituting oil. For Whole30, ghee would be a better substitute.
If this is part of your main meal, this should be made in the 5-10 minutes just before you are ready to eat.
- 1lb scallops
- Salt and pepper
- Juice of 1 small lemon
- 1 T butter (enough to fully coat your pan)
