So simple, fast, and tasty. Cook time is for Sea scallops (the large ones) if using the small Bay scallops reduce heat and cook time accordingly.
- 1 lb scallops
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves crushed garlic
- 1 finely chopped shallot
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- heat saute pan, add oil.
- saute garlic and shallot until tender.
- add scallops sprinkle with paprika.
- cook over med heat approx 15 min (depending on size of scallops) turn mid way.
Enjoyed this recipe. It's easy and has flavor. I made sure and paper towel dried the scallops prior to putting them in the pan and they crusted very nicely. Will make this again.
Maybe my scallops were teeny (bought in Switzerland), but a total of 3 minutes frying time (on higher heat than recommended, mind you) was more than enough to send them rubbery. I can't understand how 15 minutes even at a lower heat wouldn't make them rubbery as well. Other than that, the taste was great, though! Thanks for sharing!
This is how I like my scallops, plain. Actually I just used salt and pepper with the olive oil and they are great!!
