Seared scallops are my favorite food. I'm not too crazy about seafood otherwise, but I just can't help but order seared scallops if they're on the menu. I love when they're tender inside and perfectly golden around the edges, in some sort of sweet and salty creamy sauce. I don't even mind a bit of gritty sand in there.
Where have you had AMAZING seard scallops? I don't want to imagine that someone has good ones that I'm missing out on. So far I think my all time favorite were from the Left Bank restaurant in OBX, but Woodberry Kitchen had great ones too for a local favorite.
