How To: Searing Scallops at Home

By L. Stolpman in Food on Aug 31, 2009 5:00PM

On Friday night, we dined at MK and had one of the best seared scallops we've ever eaten. Perfectly seared with a golden brown crust. We wanted to know if we could come close to re-creating this at home. We gave it a go and found that it wasn't as difficult as we thought! Directions in the photo captions. And, if you have a favorite way to eat your seared scallops, let us know and we'll try to re-create the dish. Step 1 begins with the second picture. Enjoy!
