  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened but not melted

Instructions:

Cook chopped bacon in a skillet until cooked.

Dry scallops with paper towels. Season with a very small amount of salt and pepper. (use small amount of salt, as you will be adding bacon which is already salty).

Add 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of white wine (or more lemon juice). Scrape the bottom of the pan.
