Rate this Recipe

Serves 4 appetizers | 

Rich and superbly tender.


1 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons butter
12 sea scallops
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Place balsamic in a small saucepan that is set over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until reduced to 1/2 cup, about 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon of butter; set aside.
  2. Season both sides of scallops with salt and black pepper. Set a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to skillet. When butter melts, add scallops; cook until a golden crust begins to form, about 3 minutes per side. Serve scallops with reduction sauce.
