Simple Seared Scallops
Becky Luigart-Stayner

Simple Seared Scallops

For moist and tender scallops with a perfectly caramelized crust, use a cast-iron skillet to sear these scallops. Look for scallops that are moist, but not swimming in liquid, and avoid choosing any with an iodine smell. Pair with pasta or a crisp salad for a refreshing, light meal.

Pantry Checklist:

  • Sea scallops (1½ pounds)
  • All-purpose flour
  • Dried marjoram
  • White wine
  • Balsamic vinegar
