Ingredients

  • 1

    lb. scallops (~16)

  • 2

    teaspoons butter

  • 2

    teaspoons olive oil

  • kosher salt

  • freshly-ground black pepper

Directions

Remove the tensor muscle from the scallops, rinse with cold water and thoroughly pat dry. Heat the butter and oil over medium-high heat in a large saute pan until just smoking. Season the scallops and gently add them to the pan, 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.
