To the right of this bowl combine your egg and milk and mix well. Your final step will be the truffle scented bread crumbs.<br><br> 6. You are only going to bread the top side of each scallop. Start by dusting one side in the flour, then dip into the egg mixture and finally coat the top with the bread crumbs.<br><br> Continue process until all scallops are breaded. 7. Preheat the broiler in your oven.<br><br> In a cast iron or heavy bottom skillet warm the butter and coat the bottom of the pan.

If they are browning too quickly but the scallops are not cooked move them to the lower shelf and turn off the oven.<br><br> The scallops will continue to cook. 8. To serve re-season the greens with salt and pepper.<br><br> Plate the greens with a small amount of the cooking liquid and arrange three scallops on each plate. Serve with fresh lemon for juicing. <br><br>
