Pan-Seared Sea Scallops

If you are a regular on my blog, you know I really enjoy seafood. One of my most favorites is sea scallops. If you can get them as fresh as can be, they are tender and delicious. When you pan-sear the scallops they develop a flavorful crust and remain moist on the inside. It is so simple and takes no skill at all, I promise. If you are having friends over for dinner, I promise this is one dish that is sure to impress and have everyone leaving with a happy and full stomach.

Recipe yields 4 servings

1 lb fresh sea scallops
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt & freshly ground black pepper

Pat the scallops dry with a towel so there is no moisture. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper. Heat the butter and oil in a skillet and when steaming, add the scallops. Cook for 3-4 minutes without moving. If you let them be, a nice crisp, brown crust will form.

Flip over the scallops and cook the other side for an additional 2-3 minutes so that the scallops are cooked through and a brown crust has formed on the bottom side.

Remove to a serving plate and enjoy! So simple and so delicious.
