Every chef has that go to food that they just love to cook. I am interested to see what other chefs love to cook. I love scallops, there is just something so rewarding with getting a scallop perfect. It is nice and creamy on the inside and has a slight crust if you do it right. The golden brown color on the outside is amazing. Just one of those things I guess... My tips are brine the scallops for 30 minutes prior to cooking this way you do not get salt crystals on the outside and you get a better crust on the outside. Sear the scallops in a stainless steel pan, you get a better crust as well. Looking forward to hearing from the other chefs.
