Step 1

Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat.

Step 2

In the meantime, pat the scallops very dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle the sea scallops with salt and pepper, to season.

Step 3

When the pan is hot, add the grapeseed oil, then drop in your scallops, giving them enough room in between so they don’t steam each other. The scallops should make a sizzling noise when you put them in the pan.

Step 4

Cook the scallops for 2 minutes, making sure not to move them or touch them at all.

Step 5

Flip the scallops over with a pair of tongs, and add the butter to the pan. Let the scallops cook for 1 more minute, basting the scallops with the butter.

Step 6

Remove the scallops from the pan and serve!
