How to pan-fry scallops

Scallops – meaty morsels of sweet flesh with a hint of the sea – are the perfect fast food. These popular molluscs take no more than 4-5 minutes to pan-fry to perfection.

Method

1
Preheat a pan over a high heat and add a tbsp of oil. Pat dry scallops with kitchen paper and season well.
2
Add the scallops to the pan flat side down and cook until golden brown, this will take 2-3 minutes. Dont move the scallops around in the pan as this will prevent them from cooking.
3
Turn the scallop over and cook for a further 1-2 minutes
4
Add a knob of butter to the pan and baste the scallops.
5
Remove from the pan and serve immediately. The scallop should be springy to the touch and be just warm in the centre when tested with a metal skewer

Uses

After you have mastered this technique why not try Adam Gray's Scallop salad with cobnuts or Richard Corrigan's Seared scallops with salsify, blood orange and brown shrimp.
