Browned Butter Bay Scallops

Snow in Spring?! What kind of mean jokes is Mother Nature playing on us? April fools Day is still a a day away! For this past snowy weekend, my husband and I trucked it over to my parents house for a nice dinner. My mom and I teamed up and decided to do a little fish theme!
In this post, I will give you the most delicious browned butter bay scallop recipe (wow, that's a lot of B's!) and hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
