Seared Scallops with Thai 'Mignonette'

When it comes to eating seafood, which i do at least 5 times a week, i love a sauce that is spicy, sour and vinegary. im not a butter lover. this sauce which i’ve dubbed Thai ‘Mignonette’ is a everyday sauce in Thailand. My wife is from Bangkok, so im all about the everyday food of Thailand.

Instructions

    heat pan until water sizzles when dropped on it.
    on a cutting board, drizzle a single drop of olive oil on each side of the scallops.
    dust salt on each side.
    sear the scallops on each side until desired color.
    serve with sticky rice and choice of vegetable.
