Okay… I love Gordon Ramsey. We had frozen scallops (first fail I am sure), but I have been wanting to try his recipe.
Pat the scallops dry. Season with salt and pepper. Place oil in hot pan.
Place them individually clockwise in the pan with the “fatter” side down.
Cook until browned on bottom (about 3 minutes).
For one set of scallops we added a tablespoon of butter, and a thyme stem. It definitely added flavor.
Drain on a paper towel, and enjoy!
One batch we did without the extra butter but with the thyme, still yummy.
David’s plate (we had leftover Burgundy mushrooms) and served with roasted broccoli.
My plate. The scallops didn’t need any additional sauce or seasoning. I so loved them, and we will make them again!
