Scallops Sizzling

Cassie *


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!
