This video showing you how to sear scallops is done very well and easy to follow. Pat the scallops dry to help them brown using medium to high heat. Add a little oil to the pan to coat. Salt your scallops and them place in hot pan one at a time, being careful of the spatters from the hot oil. When you can see a crust then flip over. Slightly undercook the scallops, carryover cooking will complete the cooking. Cooking too long will result in chewy scallops.
