Pan Fried Scallops

Over the next few days I'll be posting some of the foods we ate while camping. Today, I post scallops.

9 sea scallops
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon each: salt, white pepper

1 tablespoon each: butter, olive oil
juice of one lemon
1 tablespoon capers, rinsed

Combine flour, paprika, salt and white pepper. Pat scallops dry, then coat lightly in flour mixture. Shake off excess. Heat butter and olive oil in a small pan to medium or medium-high heat, then fry scallops for 2-3 minutes per side. Remove scallops from pan and keep warm. Add lemon juice and capers to pan (a tablespoon or two of white wine would be nice as well at this stage), bring to a boil and reduce slightly. Pour over scallops. Serves 3.
