How to Cook Scallops
1 to 1 1/4 pounds dry sea scallops, approximately 16
2 teaspoons unsalted butter (or bacon fat)
2 teaspoons olive oil (or bacon fat)
Freshly ground black pepper
Add the butter and oil to a 12 to 14-inch saute pan on high heat. Salt and pepper the scallops.
Once the fat begins to smoke, gently add the scallops, making sure they are not touching each other. Sear the scallops for 1 1/2 minutes on each side. The scallops should have a 1/4-inch golden crust on each side while still being translucent in the center. Serve immediately.
