SEA SCALLOPS are rich in many trace minerals, including selenium and zinc, which have been shown to support proper thyroid and brain function.

PERFECT PAN SEARED SEA SCALLOPS


1 pound large fresh local sea scallops (we love Mullaney's Fish Market!)

1-2 tbsp coconut oil

to taste Duxbury Saltworks Spring Salt


On the stove, heat a heavy bottomed pan over high heat, add enough coconut oil to lightly coat the entire surface of the pan and continue to heat the pan until it just begins to smoke.


Add scallops to the pan, season with a pinch of Duxbury Saltworks Spring Salt and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes, or until the scallops are easily removed from the pan.


DO NOT FORCE the scallops to release if they are still sticking to the pan!


After turning the scallops, reduce the heat to medium-high and continue cooking until scallops are still a bit translucent in the middle and and can be easily removed from the pan, approximately 1-3 minutes.


Serve with the above salads, or your favorite side and enjoy immediately!
