How to Make Seared Scallops over Cauliflower Rice Risotto

The trick to getting a perfect sear on the scallops is to ensure that they are completely dry before cooking. Place them on a paper towel to drain, then pat them with a paper towel to remove any excess moisture. Season the scallops lightly with salt and pepper.

Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat, once the oil is hot, add the butter. Place the scallops in the hot pan and sear them, cooking for about 2 minutes on each side. Spoon the fat over them, basting as they fry.
