    These aren’t very caramelized.  The butter has browned, but that’s it.

      They are lightly caramelized you are right, you certainly can brown them more, this is just my preference.

  2. RobinL says:

    It helps to pat the scallops dry before putting in the pan.  They will brown better.

      @RobinL Thanks Robin, you are right.  I had mine between paper towels before putting them in the skillet.  I will make the change.
