SAVE this cause you’ll want to know how to sear these scallops‼️
3 SECRETS HOW TO SEAR SCALLOPS…
• RIGHT HEAT
• CAST IRON WOK OR SKILLET
• GOOD SPICE RUB
So, what’s the Right Heat?
I was using my Nuwave stove at 375, so medium high on Iwatani gas stove. Any lower and the scallops will ‘sweat’ so not searing and will become soggy and soft. You want them to be crispy on the outside but succulent inside. Same for stir frying any meat.
Why cast iron?
Cast iron is the best material for cooking anything! I think you’ve heard me mention this a thousand times and that’s why I made a commitment to bring you the best lightweight, thin walled cast iron wok. You can find out more about the benefits of using a cast iron wok here. You’ll also find out why you should NOT use nonstick pans or woks which cannot withstand heat above medium as well as the dangers of their toxic material. It’s the main reason many have not succeeded in stir frying!
Good Spice Rub
I use spice rubs nearly on a daily basis. It’s such a simple way to add FLAVOR to your dishes. Just avoid spices with fillers or MSG. Here’s my post with 4 tips to add flavor to any dish.
Ready to see how I seared those scallops?
These wild caught sea scallops were fabulous, plump and weren’t mushy like many I’ve tried. So juicy, tender and delicious. Quick to defrost too, overnight in fridge.
Scallops have lots of healthy nutrients like omega 3 fatty acids, the best kind of fat. Also magnesium and B12. Visit Healthline for more health benefits to eating scallops!
My hubby couldn’t stop complimenting me! The best part about cooking? Knowing you can control what’s going into your food and how food affects your health, food is medicine!
