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.

Ingredients

  • 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)

Directions

  4. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley if desired.
