My favorite seafood is scallops! I LOVE Scallops! LOVE! They are my chocolate! So when I made these I got us some extra special scallops from Whole Foods for Normy and me. What makes Whole Foods Scallops so special? Well they are the best scallops I have bought and they aren’t cheap! But you get what you pay for and they melted in our mouths!
So Normy rinsed them under cold water and took the beards off of them.
Then he dried them really well with paper towels and placed them on a plate
Then I preheated 2 cast iron skillets and did about 1 tbsp of butter and 1 tbsp of olive oil and turned the skillet up to high and got them smoking hot as I wanted to sear these scallops.
we cooked each side of the scallop for 3-5 minutes, Peaked a few times to make sure the coloring was perfect
This is just the best thing ever to me…
So I want to say they cooked for a total of 10-12 minutes
and there you have it: scallops al la Jamie and Normy!
The BEST scallops I have ever cooked so far!!
