  4. Add the mushroom scallops. Spoon half of the brown butter over the scallops and cook 3 to 5 minutes, until the bottoms are golden brown. Flip and spoon the remaining brown butter over the top of each. Cook 3 to 5 more minutes, until tender.
  5. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and thyme leaves before serving.
