Here are two of the chef's dishes featured in the season premiere below!
Chad's Seared Scallops:
1 pound dry sea scallops, about 12
4 tablespoons olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
Remove the small side muscle from the scallops and rinse with cold
water and thoroughly dry.
Add the oil to a 12 to 14-inch saute pan on high heat. Salt and pepper
the scallops. Once the oil begins to smoke, add the scallops.
Do not let the scallops touch each other.
Sear the scallops for 1 1/2 minutes on each side.
The scallops should have a 1/4-inch golden crust on each side while
still being translucent and soft in the center.
Careful to watch them and to turn them, they burn quick!
And to the Scallop Recipe I forgot!
1/2 lb of Fresh Haricot Verts
Boil in a medium sauce pan, your water and salt.
Quickly drop the beans into the boiling water, allowing them to boil for about 25 seconds
Remove quickly and drop them in a cold ice bath to retain color and crunch.
