Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Generously season the flat side of each scallop with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Press each scallop in to the Pacific Seafood. (Don't worry about over-salting. The blend is salt-free!)
  3. Heat the oil and butter in a heavy bottom skillet until it is almost smoking.
  4. Carefully place each scallop in the pan, spice side down.
  5. Let the scallops get a nice dark crust on them. This will take 2-3 minutes. It is important not to move the scallops around while the crust is forming. Resist the urge to flip, nudge, or even touch them.
  6. Once you have a nice golden brown crust, flip the scallops and continue to cook for another minute or so.
  7. Remove the scallops from the pan and serve.

Notes

A perfectly done scallop will still have lots of "give" in it when gently pressed with a finger. If the scallop is hard or springy, it's overcooked.
