Creamy Garlic Scallops over Cauliflower Rice

For the scallops,
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 ½ pounds of scallops
2 tablespoons of butter
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 good pinch of salt
1 good pinch of pepper
⅓ cup of chicken bone broth
1 cup of heavy cream
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
¼ cup of chopped parsley

Start by heating a cast iron skillet on the stove.

Next, make sure you pat each scallop dry using a paper towel. Then, add in the olive oil and make sure it almost smokes. Add the scallops in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper. Allow the scallops to cook evenly on one side for about 2-3 minutes without touching them. This will ensure a crust forms. Then, flip the scallops and cook on the other side. Once each side is golden brown, remove from the skillet.

In the same pan, melt the butter and then add in the garlic. Next, add the broth and simmer for about 2 minutes until the broth reduces. Add in the cream and simmer until the sauce has thickened. Then, add in the lemon juice, along with scallops and parsley. Once the scallops are warm, you’re ready to serve.
