Cooking Low FODMAP Pan Seared Sea Scallops with Vinaigrette
Pan searing is a technique in which the protein is cooked in a pan over high heat, until a caramelized crust forms. Due to the speedy nature of the process, be sure not to overcook the scallops, as they will become tough and chewy. The best searing pan is one made of stainless steel or a cast iron pan.
Here are additional tips for cooking scallops. First, remove the tough side muscles which secure the scallops to the shells. Gently pat the scallops dry with paper towels. Make sure the oil in the pan is hot enough that it sizzles on contact with the scallops. Separate the scallops on the pan about an inch apart and do not layer. Cook the scallops on both sides, until they are seared golden brown and no longer translucent on the sides.
Use a true garlic infused oil (without garlic pieces or powder in it) like Baja Precious – Glorious Garlic Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil (750ml Bottle).
