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

Hi Lee - I have never tried it, so I did a little research (Links below). All the links that I read seem to emphasize that the scallops be rinsed and patted dry. The oil must be a mixture of olive oil and butter, finally, the pan has to be real hot. One link suggested just at the smoke point.

Hope this helps.

Andy
