Serves 4

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

 

Ingredients: 

2 teaspoons unsalted butter or Olive oil

1 pound jumbo sea scallops

Bacon jam

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Before searing the scallops, remove any moisture by patting them dry so they don't steam in their own juices.  Salt and pepper to taste and sear scallops in a hot skillet with butter or olive oil for 2-3 minutes per side until the scallop starts to brown and split on the side.  Depending on the size, you may need to increase cooking time.

Place warm scallops on a plate and top with bacon jam.  Remember to warm the bacon jam before serving.

This will be served with a frieze salad with cherry tomatoes tossed in a light balsamic vinaigrette.
