How to pan-fry scallops
Rich Harris shows you how to cook scallops perfectly.
Recipe - Serves: 2 as a starter
8 fresh king scallops, roe removed
1 tbsp olive oil
15g butter, cubed
1. Toss the scallops in the oil and season.
2. Heat a frying pan over a very high heat. Add the scallops and hold them in position – this helps them keep contact with the pan and holds their shape. Fry for 2 minutes, then turn and fry for a further minute.
3. Add the butter. When it starts to foam, baste the scallops for a minute until golden.
4. Drain on kitchen paper and serve.
