Stopped at our local fresh meat market and saw these absolutely beautiful scallops, so I decided pair them with ribeyes. I wasn’t planning on posting, so only picture I got was once they were on my plate. They were just too delicious not to share. The cast iron skillet is the trick! Can’t wait to make these sizzling gems again! Enjoy!

    Get skillet smoking hot ( cast iron skillet) add enough olive oil to coat bottom of skillet. Drop scallops one at a time, leaving plenty of room between each. Let sizzle about 2 minutes on that side. (Don't move so to caramelize) With tongs flip each to other side. Now, add butter and sizzle 1 1/2 more minutes or until scallops are evenly opaque. Do not overcook!
