Recipe - Scallops in Brown Butter

It was fish supper time! Except I felt ill enough for mid afternoon nap and it was so blustery outside that we didn't make it to The Ship on the Shore. It's not so bad - having booked most of my holidays already means I'm overdrawn again. Which is fine but uncomfortable to experience again. Anyway, I wasn't so sad about saving a little money. However, this did mean that the Explorer's big date (in commemoration of it being two years since we 'found eachother' as it's hard to pinpoint when I stopped insisting that we weren't together) was thwarted as it's difficult for me to not just do something if it will clearly be much easier for me than whoever I'm watching do it. Anyway, that's how we ended up with this.

250g small scallops
Drizzle of olive oil
Dessert spoon of butter
1 clove garlic, crushed
Small bunch sage, finely chopped

In the olive oil, place the scallops and fry for about 2 minutes. 
Add the butter, sage and garlic and let melt.
Carefully turn the scallops and let cook for another 3 minutes in the butter.

Serve with garlicky spinach (literally garlic fried in oil then spinach added, tossed and covered for a couple of minutes).
