Fresh scallops seared in butter, this is my most favorite way of cooking scallops…
I am a die hard fan of all kinds of shell fish, I would say shell fish meat tastes delicious than any other meat. The other day, my pick was fresh Scallops. When I dine out, if I see scallops on the menu I mostly end up ordering that.
The key about cooking delicious scallops is that it shouldn’t be over seasoned. Season them with just salt and ground pepper and pan sear them in butter. They would turn delicious and can be served with salads or can be served as an appetizer.
