Simple Seared Scallops

Crisp on the outside, tender on the inside: searing is a simple cooking method that treats scallops exactly right. Serve these over a bed of seasonal greens and enjoy.


  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • ½ tsp. marjoram
  • 1½ lbs. sea scallops
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • Fresh parsley sprigs (optional)


  1. Toss scallops with flour and marjoram.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Tap excess flour off scallops and cook until fully opaque, flipping once (2-3 minutes per side). Remove scallops and set aside.
  3. Add wine and vinegar to skillet to deglaze. Stir with a whisk until slightly thick (3 minutes). Stir in scallops to coat.
  4. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley if desired.
