1. Slice the onion and garlic, and chop the mushrooms into preferred sizes. Coat the scallops with katakuriko (not listed). Mix together all the ingredients for the combined seasoning.

3. Heat the rest of the butter in the frying pan, and cook the scallops on both sides. Add half the combined seasoning , cover the pan, and let steam for a little.
4. After steaming for a minute, add the cooked vegetables from Step 2 and the rest of the combined seasoning into the pan to mix. Serve with some green onions and lemon juice if you'd like.
