fresh sea scallops (I use size 20-40)
salt and pepper
2 tbsp of butter
Step 1: Using paper towel, pat dry the scallops so there is no extra moisture. Season both sides of the scallops with salt and pepper.
Step 2: Place a large frying pan over medium-hi heat. Add the butter and allow it to melt. When the butter begins to foam, add the scallops. Be careful not to over-crowd the pan - if needed, do the scallops in batches.
Step 3: Let the scallops cook on one side, without touching for roughly 2 minutes. You'll see dark edges on the bottom of the scallop - this is when it's time to flip the scallops over.
Step 4: Finish cooking all the scallops, so there is an even brown crusted colour on both sides. Transfer to a plate and eat right away, yum yum!
