Pan Seared Sea Scallops

These were AWESOME {insert sing-song voice here}! I don’t do shellfish often but occasionally I’ll get a taste for these rich and delish mussels. This recipe is so simple and easy. If you’re not sure how to cook up scallops, here’s the best way. I served these on top of my creamy risotto and it was heavenly!

1 dozen sea scallops, thawed, washed, and patted dry

1 Tbsp. EVOO

1 Tbsp. butter

salt and pepper

Toss scallops with EVOO and salt and pepper. Heat nonstick skillet with butter over high heat. When pan is hot place scallops in. Be sure the mussels do not touch each other as this will draw moisture out. Sear on one side for about 4-5 minutes until browned. Turn scallops over and sear the other side for same amount of time.

Serve over Creamy Risotto and Enjoy!

 See how easy that was?
