Here’s the recipe: about a pound of sea scallops. Rinse them and dry them on a towel. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, lemon peel on the towel. In a hot skillet (cast iron perfect for this) heat about a tablespoon of olive oil on medium heat.
Put the scallops in and sear on one side for about 3-4 minutes. Turn and sear the other side. After 3-4 minutes add about a cup of wine. Glug glug glug glug. Don’t measure! I beg you!
Keep scallops in pan for a minute more then remove to serving plate. Add about a tablespoon of butter and about a tablespoon of capers. Stir removing any bits stuck in pan. When sauce is thick, pour over scallops.
Have a yummy day!
