Cooke Seafood Sea Scallops are a delicious seafood delicacy that can be cooked in various ways. Here’s a simple method for cooking scallops:

  1. Start by patting the Sea Scallops dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. This will help achieve a better sear.
  2. Season the Sea Scallops with salt and pepper on both sides. Be careful not to over season, as scallops have a delicate flavour.
  3. Heat a frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of olive oil or a pat of butter to the pan and let it melt.
  4. Once the oil or butter is hot and sizzling, add the scallops to the pan. Make sure to leave some space between each scallop to ensure even cooking. Avoid overcrowding the pan, as it can lead to steaming instead of searing.
  5. Cook the Sea Scallops for about 2-3 minutes on one side until they develop a golden brown crust. Avoid moving or flipping them too early to achieve a nice sear. Use tongs to flip the Sea Scallops over and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes on the other side.
  6. Pay attention to the Sea Scallops’ texture; they should feel firm but still slightly tender when gently pressed with tongs. Overcooking can result in a rubbery texture.
  7. Once the Sea Scallops are cooked to your liking, remove them from the pan and transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  8. Serve the Cooke Seafood Sea Scallops immediately while they’re still hot. You can squeeze fresh lemon juice over them for added flavour if desired.

Scallops are versatile and can be enjoyed on their own as an appetizer, added to pasta dishes, or served with a side of vegetables or salad. Enjoy your meal!
