Here’s what you’ll need:

- plate for the finished product
Step-By-Step Blackened Scallops
To start, put a touch of olive oil in a cast-iron skillet and place it over a flame to get the skillet very hot.
After you’ve rinsed the scallops, put them in a bowl and pour (cooled) melted butter over them.
As the pan continues to heat, coat the scallops with a blackening seasoning of your preference.
Give the scallops a quick mix to ensure all of those flavors are coating them.
When the cast-iron skillet has a little smoke coming off of it, toss one scallop on the pan to see if it sizzles.
If so, start placing the scallops around the pan beginning with the edges working towards the middle.
You want to make sure every scallop is touching the pan (not in a clump).
When the scallops are in the pan, it’s optional to hit them again with a dusting of more seasoning.
They usually cook for about a minute on each side.
That bottom side should be a nice crispy, brown color before you turn them over.
Once you flip them, make sure the side that is white is face down to get a crisp on both sides.
The butterknife is for going in and individually flipping the scallops that did not get flipped.
Once they get nice and brown, the scallops are finished cooking.
These are perfect for eating directly or tossing them with some angel hair pasta as a main dish!
Are you going to cook these yourself anytime soon??
