How to Make It

1. Step
Season the scallops on both sides with salt and pepper.
2. Step
In a large skillet, melt together 1 tablespoon butter and the olive oil over high heat. When the butter has melted, add the scallops to the pan and sear, flipping once halfway through, until golden brown on both sides and nearly opaque all the way through, 3–4 minutes total. Divide the scallops between 2 plates and return the skillet to medium-high heat.
3. Step
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in the skillet. Add the shallots and garlic. Cook, stirring, until softened and lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
4. Step
Stir in the capers and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in the wine and cook, stirring, until slightly reduced, about 3 minutes.
5. Step
Remove the skillet from the heat and add the remaining tablespoon of butter, swirling the pan until it melts into the sauce. Season the sauce with salt and pepper, then spoon over the scallops. Serve hot.
6. Step
Enjoy!
