Seared Scallops are something that I’ve wanted to master for quite some time now, the taster is pretty good at getting the perfect crust but it was my turn to try!

I came across a recipe from Andrew Zimmern, who if any of you don’t know is host of the show Bizarre Foods and also happens to live here in the Twin Cities.

These scallops were anything but bizarre. In fact, they turned out great. I was hoping for a “crisper, more seared” crust, but I didn’t want to over-cook them so I settled :/ The sauce was a white wine, caper, shallot, butter and pan scrapings. I loved it over the scallops. Here¬†is the recipe if you are interested. I guess I will just have to try again to perfect this recipe ;)

PS. I made some focaccia to go along with this meal but it did NOT turn out and so I’m waiting until I can get that one right to share it with you!

      You should totally make them Molly! They are kind of scary, but after you try it you’ll see that they aren’t TOO bad!
