Pan-Seared Sea Scallops

Yields2 ServingsPrep Time3 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time18 mins

 Sea Scallops
 1 tbsp Vegetable Oil
 1 tbsp Butter

Heat a large (not non-stick) skillet over almost high heat.


Dry scallops do not need rinsing, as they are not packed in liquid. Just pat them to assure they are completely dry and season them with kosher salt.


Add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and 1 tablespoon butter to the pan - it should smoke a little bit.


Add scallops and DON’T MOVE THEM for at least 2 minutes. They will smoke a little bit.


Turn them when they have a golden-brown crust and cook for one minute on the other side.


Scallops should be served when translucent in the middle - don’t overcook! ENJOY!
