6 scallops, large 360 g
6 cups baby spinach 100 g
1 1/2 tbsp butter, unsalted 20 g
1/2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/4 lemon
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Prepare the baby spinach: Wash and drain well. Rinse the scallops and pat dry. Add salt and pepper.
  2. Heat half of the butter in a pan over medium heat. (It is important to use a pan large enough to avoid crowding the scallops or they will steam and not turn golden-brown. For larger amounts, cook only a few scallops at a time and keep them warm in the oven while repeating the operation with the remaining scallops). Add the scallops then sauté rapidly, until they become golden-brown, about 2 min per side (they get harder and dry when overcooked). Set them aside on a warm plate in the oven.
  3. Discard the remaining cooking liquid. Put the pan back over high heat. Melt the rest of the butter and scrape the bottom with a wooden spoon. Add the spinach and toss. Cook 2-3 min until wilted. Add salt and pepper, then sprinkle with the lemon juice.
  4. Distribute the spinach over the warmed individual serving plates. Place the scallops on top then serve.
