Seared Jumbo Scallops

If there was only one “genre” (I guess is the word I’m looking for) of food that I was restricted to for the rest of my life, it would HAVE to be SeaFood!  Although, I would miss red meat terribly.    I don’t think there is much that can beat Seared Scallops other than maybe Crab Legs or Lobster Tail (Oooh, Oooh, and Shrimp Scampi).

Seared Jumbo Scallops

2 jumbo scallops

pinch chopped shallots

pinch chopped garlic

dash olive oil

1 ounce proscuitto ham, julienned

2 tablespoons butter

1 pinch saffron (have you priced saffron lately??!!)

In a non-stick pan, add oil and heat. Add proscuitto and cook until slightly crispy. Remove and add a small pat of butter. Sear scallops until browned on each side. Remove and add saffron. Melt and serve.

This recipe serves one.
