Favorite way to have a scallop

What is everyones favorite way to have a scallop? Id say mine has to be the ever so classic red pepper coulis with maybe a little chive oil.

We like sea scallops seared in a hot pan with a little salt and pepper.

This is my favorite way too. I also love them raw.

I think I've only has scallops sauted in a pan with butter, so that way has my vote.
I was the one in the family that ordered the seafood platter broiled, not fried, so developed a taste for breading on very few things.

I agree with everyone above, nothing beats a good pan seared scallop. But with the red pepper coulis its just amazing.

It sounds like a nice sauce.

Pan seared in bacon fat, s&p, garlic, white wine at the end.... yep!

Occasionally I will lightly dust the scallops with a bit of flour, cornmeal, and seasonings, then pan sear in butter or bacon fat. Gives it a bit of crust without coating it. LOVE EM!

We LOVE scallops, & are lucky in that a small local market carries the hockey-puck-size dry-pack ones regularly.

One of our many favorite ways to enjoy them is pan-seared in a cast-iron skillet & served with a small dollop of fresh basil pesto atop each one.

Another fun topping post-searing is some warmed Thai Sweet Chili sauce.
