Once again, when I told my mom I would be making scallops (aka something fishy) for dinner, she wrinkled her nose and said, “I don’t like scallops.”
After she tasted these, she said, “I don’t know what I was thinking, these are great!”
If that is any indication on what these babies taste like, I’ll let that statement do the talking. And this is SO easy. Took me about 2 minutes to prepare and 6 minutes to cook. (Yes, that’s less than 10 minutes)
- 8 large sea Scallops
- 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (plus 1 Tbsp for cooking)
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 2 soy sauce
- Salt and black pepper (1/4 Tsp each)
In a small bowl or glass, mix together Olive Oil, soy sauce, honey, salt and pepper. Pour over scallops, generously dousing each one. Allow them to sit in the sauce and marinate for 10 minutes.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook scallops for about 3 minutes then flip and cook an additional 3 minutes. They should appear golden brown when cooked through.
When ready to serve on your plate, make sure you drizzle the excess soy/honey mixture over the scallops for extra flavor.
