The Pan-Seared Scallops have a nice nutty flavor that enhances the quality of an already great product. This technique is different in feeling and texture from the traditionally cooked scallops, and is a great idea for anyone that prefers a firmer texture. These scallops are perfect in a seafood platter, in a barbecue, or even in a dinner with friends. If you want to go beyond the basics, open and clean the scallops yourself. Not sure how? No problem, Chef Luca Ferrari also shows you how to do it on CREME!
