How to Cook Lemony Ghee Scallops With Bacon
- Line a baking tray with parchment paper and add the bacon strips on it. Bake for 20 minutes at 370⁰F/185⁰C. Set aside.
- Heat the ghee in a skillet over high heat and add the scallops. Season with salt and pepper. Cook them on each side for 1.5 minutes.
- Transfer them to a plate. Add the lemon juice to the pan over the scallop drippings and lower the heat. Stir continuously until it sizzles. Remove from heat.
- Serve the scallops on a plate, drizzled with lemon sauce and topped with crumbled bacon. Optionally garnish with fresh basil and with wedges of lemon or lime.
