Sea Scallops & what? Spinach maybe, or linguini, how about wild rice!! These delicate treats from the Sea are surprisingly easy to make.
Using clarified butter, a little white wine, and salt & pepper it takes 7 minutes from pan to plate. You could dress them up with a glaze or fresh herbs if your mood calls for it.  To clarify butter;

In a small pot, slowly melt 1/2 stick of unsalted butter.
Remove the foam, by skimming the top.
Use the clarified butter in sauces, or searing fish
