Shouts Chef Gordon Ramsey on the popular TV show "Hell's Kitchen". Scallops were a staple dish on the show and it seemed like contestants always crashed and burned making them. The show made them look so easy to cook!
So let's fast forward to 2014. I've never even eaten scallops let alone tried to cook them. Isn't it obvious that I would have to change that?
The seasoning of the scallops themselves is very light as you don't want to mask the great taste of the scallop itself. The pan sauce is optional but I think it adds a nice touch to the dish. Finally, what's a dish without bacon!?
