Scallops: The first attempt

4 years ago

Scallops are one of my favorite things to order in restaurants! But I hate having to go to a restaurant for one of my favorite things to eat, so I thought I would learn to make them myself.
Sadly scallops can be quite expensive they run $9.99 per LB at my local grocery store and that is a little to high for my college budget so I bought a huge bag of frozen scallops at Sams for $25.99. I was nervous paying so much for a frozen product, but i decided it was worth the risk.
The scallops only took a couple hours before they were thawed out, and I took the proper measures of drying them off with a paper towel before seasoning them.
I heated up about a quart of a cup of olive oil in a pan until it was near screaming! Seasoned my scallops with salt and pepper and tossed them in the pan hoping for the best.
They only took about 3 minutes on each side, until they had a nice golden brown color.
I took them out of the pan and cut one in half just to make sure it was cooked through, and they were perfect!

Excited I took a bite of my scallops and they were wonderful! They were fluffy and buttery and flakey and had the right texture! I could hardly tell they had been frozen!
I was really happy with the results and I can`t wait to learn more scallop centered dishes!
I`ll let y`all know what I come up with!
