What to Do

1. Defrost slow and steady. Move Scallops to the fridge 24 hours before you plan to cook them.

2. Season well. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and any other spices included in your recipe.

3. Dry thoroughly. To achieve a perfect sear, make sure to pat your scallops dry beforehand. Pro tip – season both sides with plenty of salt to draw out excess moisture.

4. Start with a hot pan. Coat a skillet in oil or clarified butter and crank up the heat to high. Add the scallops once the oil starts lightly smoking.

5. Get cooking already!

 

What Not to Do

1. Never defrost in the microwave. No matter how desperate you are. Microwaving the Scallops could cost you their tender texture.

2. Avoid fiddling too much. When searing in a pan, let scallops sit (without peeking!) until a golden crust has formed, about 3 mins.

3. Don’t forget to share! Post your dish on social and tag us @sea2table on Instagram or Facebook.
