Learn how to make Perfectly Seared Scallops Meal Prep with this easy step by step guide!
Ultra hot pan. Check
1 tbsp Butter. Check
1 tbsp Olive Oil. Check
8 oz SizzleFish Scallops. Check.
You want to make sure that the scallops aren’t crowded, so make sure there is about 1/2 inch between each of the pieces so the heat can escape the bottom of the scallop.
Gently add the scallops into the pan and PAY ATTENTION! Some people say cook them for 60 seconds per side…other people say cook them for 90 seconds per side. I say, cook them for 75 seconds per side if you really want to get the perfect sear. I totally understand that the cooking equipment could impact the cooking time, but I have a cheap stove and cheap pans…which is probably like more people in the world, hence…75 seconds.
(Sends Snapchat and forgets to Salt and Pepper) DOH!
Make sure you season before and after cooking the scallops. A pinch of salt and a dash of pepper is all you need.
Scallops are one of those things that are so quick and easy to cook, yet SO easy to screw up. If you want to see over cooked scallops, check out my IG post from about a year ago. Hahahaha
