Pan Seared Scallops

Who doesn’t like a nicely browned, delicious, tender pan seared scallop? They look so hard to make and yet are so easy! Here’s what you need:

1½ pounds scallops
2 tablespoons butter
Olive oil
Salt and Pepper (freshly ground)

Ø Rinse and pat dry the scallops. Dry both sides well.

Ø Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add some olive oil to prevent butter from burning.

Ø Add the scallops. Season with salt and pepper.

Ø Cook until bottom is well browned. Flip.

Ø Finish browning other side. Serve.
