Instructions

Scallops

  1. Pat your thawed scallops completely dry with a paper towel, and let rest on a paper towel lined plate to draw out all the moisture.
  2. Heat your cast iron skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  3. Season the scallops with salt.
  4. Add the ghee to the cast iron skillet. Sear each scallop for 2 minutes on the first side without touching them. This will give you that great golden crust.
  5. After 2 minutes, flip and cook an additional 90 seconds on the 2nd side.
  6. Push all the scallops to 1 side of the pan. Add in a smashed clove of garlic, and tilt the pan so you can spoon all the garlicy ghee on top of the scallops for another 30 seconds.
  7. Remove from the pan.
  8. Serving

Serving

  1. Serve warm drizzled with the garlic ghee pan drippings.
  2. I love serving mine with cauliflower rice risotto and sauteed spinach with some lemon zest and fresh squeezed lemon.
