Scallops - what am I doing wrong?

Obessed | Feb 10, 2007 08:40 PM

I'm a pretty good cook and I must say that most things I make turn out yummy :-) But I have never been able to cook scallops. I buy fresh, good quality ones so it's not the quality of them. I read they need to be be dry --- so tonight I dried them between 2 paper towels and attempted to sear them in olive oil/butter. No sear action!!! Just a white liquid in the pan. They were edible, but did not have a crusty layer - like the ones I had at a restuarnt last week. Please help!!! What am I doing wrong?
