This simple recipe is only 3 ingredients, two of which you are almost guaranteed to have on hand. Still, these three ingredients make for a luxurious and delicious entree!
Diver Scallops (large)
Salt and pepper
Melt enough butter to coat pan (depend son number of scallops/size of pan). Skim off top solids of melted butter to clarify it. Dry off scallops with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Heat butter to shimmering (almost burning) in pan and add scallops. Let them sear for 2-3 minutes until bottom releases (takes judgement and practice, do not move them if possible), then flip and sear other side. Remove when just opaque (or to taste). Serve immediately!
