How to Buy and Cook Scallops

These highly useful videos from ChefSteps lay out a few pointers for how to buy and cook scallops that will have you shopping like an expert next time you’re at the local market or fishmongers, and cooking like a top chef at home.  

The first focuses on some simple ways to check for freshness, as well as advice on sizing. Buying fresh fish and seafood can be intimidating if you don’t know what to look for, but it’s so important that you buy the freshest produce available.

The second video shows you how to very simply pan sear a scallop, ensuing you get the perfect scallop every time and don’t waste these precious and delicately meaty molluscs.
