Default Re: How do I get a good crust on sea scallops?

Take a look at them before you buy. Some are treated and have a lot of liquid in them. They will be sitting in a puddle of liquid. They will not form a crust. Look for ones that look a little sticky. They do need to be patted dry and seared in a very hot pan. Peanut oil would be a good choice because of its very high smoke point.
