The secret to getting a nice golden-brown sear on your scallops is to buy ones that are labeled dry. That means they haven't been treated with sodium tripolyphosphate (STP), a preservative that helps them retain water, which prevents them from browning well. Serve with roasted potatoes for a complete meal.

This is one of my all-time favorite dinners, perfect as written. Be sure to use fresh scallops. I serve with roasted sweet potato wedges.
