Chef Erik of Evo Italian restaurant has a recipe for scallops.


1lb U-10 Diver Scallops

¼ Cup of Herbs de Provence (garden chopped herbs)

Salt and Pepper

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter

3. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a 12-inch nonstick pan over high heat until just smoking. Place each scallop into the pan flat side down and cook without moving until well browned, about 1 1/2 min.

4. Add butter to pan.

5. Using tongs, flip scallops and continue to cook.

6. Use a large spoon to baste scallops with melted butter until the sides of the scallops are firm. About 45 seconds.
