We had some FABULOUS sea scallops last night!!! I got them from our Amissville, VA's, infamous "Epicurious Cow" orgainic/gourmet shop. They were so large, that just 6 of them were 1-1/4 pounds!!!
I sprinkled them lightly with some Cajun seasoning, & then seared them for about 3-4 minutes per side (they were the size of hockey pucks & a good 2" thick) in extra-virgin olive oil, finishing with a splash of dry white wine & fresh lemon juice.
Served them on a bed of artisinal black-pepper fettucini with a green salad on the side. DELICIOUS!!!
