If I had to pick a favorite source of protein, it would be perfectly-cooked, melt-in-your-mouth scallops. Yum! These Low FODMAP Scallops with Lemon are definitely a treat for us because scallops are pretty dang expensive here in Minnesota. However, when I do make them I’ve learned a couple of tricks and tips to perfectly cooked scallops.

The first tip is to make sure your scallops are super dry. For us, they usually come frozen, so I will thaw them out in a bowl in our refrigerator. Then, I will drain them and lay them out on paper towels. Right before cooking, I will give them one final pat down with a paper towel to help make sure they are super dry.

Secondly, make sure your pan is hot before adding your scallops. This helps get a nice crusty sear on the outside while not overcooking the inside.

Finally, try not to overcook your scallops. I am notorious for leaving things to cook on the stove while I multi-task on something else. This is not a recipe to do that! 🙂

    1. Hi Pam, these scallops are cooked on the stove-top over high (or medium-high) heat, depending on your stove. The oven isn’t used for this recipe. 🙂 Thanks!
