Pan Seared Scallops with Seaweed & Chilli Butter
August 12, 2021
Scallops are our favorite seafood ingredient to cook for date nights. There is minimal preparation, and they cook super quickly. This means less time in the kitchen and more time to spend with your loved one. Our pro tip is to make sure that you pat the scallops dry before seasoning with our Rainbow Seaweed Salt. This ensures that the scallops are seared to perfection.
