I’ve been thinking about scallops all week long. Probably because the bacon wrapped scallops we had on vacation were so darn good.
I was meeting a client at Whole Foods the other day and randomly decided to swing by the seafood section after our talk. I was lucky enough to find some fresh scallops from Pigeon Cove in Gloucester, MA. That’s about as local as you can get in terms of seafood, so I bought some!
Scallops are so easy to make-cook in minutes and they don’t need much seasoning to be super tasty.
Pan Seared Scallops with Lemon
Fresh scallops– I used 3/4lb for two people, about 10 scallops
1 Tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 lemon cut into wedges.
Put 1 Tbsp of olive oil into a pan and sear the scallops over medium-high heat until golden brown on each side and opaque all the way through. About 4 minutes per side depending on how ancient your stove is.
