Blue Earth Foods scallop dish

Pan-fried scallops with chilli, ginger & orange

Make sure to thoroughly pat the scallops dry with paper kitchen towel to absorb all the liquid before searing. Understanding how quickly scallops cook means you’ll never be intimidated again. They only take a few minutes to cook, that’s it!  Heat an oiled skillet or pan until its sizzling. You want them to sizzle and crisp to a golden colour on the outside. The first scallop should sizzle as soon as it hits the oil. If it doesn’t, wait and let the pan continue heating before adding any more.
