Scallops are delicious with plums. Scallops are also delicious on their own.
We enjoyed scallops with garlic in our motor home kitchen while spending the night on the Digby Neck. We had little access to fresh herbs at our campsite; however, we did have a fire-pit/barbecue made from the drum of an old dryer attached to an old lawnmower that gave the ocean front view a runs for its money. Besides, the scallops were so delicious they did not need a fresh herb garnish. However, if you are further away from the ocean you may want to add parsley
Pan-fried Scallops with Garlic
4 tbsp. good extra virgin olive oil
2 pounds sea scallops
flour for dredging
1 tbsp. minced garlic
salt & pepper to taste
Heat olive oil in a medium-sized pan over medium-high. Lightly dredge scallops in flour while oil is heating up and then add to the pan one at a time. Allow to brown, about 2 minutes, and then flip. Season with salt and pepper.
Lower heat and add garlic. Shake pan so garlic cooks enough to add flavour to the scallops. Garnish with parsley, or not. Serve.
