I love the sweetness of sea scallops – and the ease of preparing them! These beauties have a depth and sweetness the smaller bay scallops just don’t have. Add some sides and dinner is served!
What you need:
- 12 Large Sea scallops
- 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- Small bunch of chives
- 4 sprigs of parsley
- 2 Tablespoons virgin olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
How to Do it:
Rinse the scallops and dry them well on paper towels.
Press each side of all the scallops into the spices, making sure it sticks.
Heat the olive oil to medium high in a skillet or grill pan. Place each scallop in the hot oil and sear for about 1 – 2 minutes on each side. They should be soft and tender on the inside with a brown sear on the outside. Be careful not to over-cook!
Remove from heat and serve hot, garnished with chives and parsley.
Good sides might be some rice and a small salad.
