Seared Scallops with Pineapple-Ginger Sauce
Searing scallops is one of the best ways to cook them, as the high heat brings out their sweet, briny flavor. For best results, buy "dry" scallops, ones that have not been treated with a sodium phosphate solution. They don’t need to be rinsed, but patting them dry will help them brown. Make sure your skillet is very hot. I like to use a cast-iron pan for searing. Drizzle the scallops with some olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.
