Pan-Seared Scallops
Nina Fomufod

After attempting to be crazy fancy — and setting off the fire alarm in my smoke-filled apartment — I decided that simplicity is the way to go when dealing with these tasty bivalves. All you need for this recipe is high-quality butter, scallops, and a pan.

The butter will add richness and flavor, while still allowing the scallops to shine on their own. If you want to jazz it up, wrap them in bacon.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 pound large sea scallops
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter

DIRECTIONS

Rinse the scallops, and pat them dry. Heat the butter in a medium-sized pan over high heat. Add the scallops to the pan in a single layer. Allow them to cook for about 2 minutes, and then turn them over. After they cook for 2 more minutes, remove them from the pan.
