I always want to get some, I like ordering them when I eat out, but I have no clue on how to make them at home. How do you cook them? Tips?

Broil them wrapped in bacon. Or just throw 'em in a hot pan and saute them.

Take a saute pan and add 1 tbsp each of olive oil and butter. Finely dice a shallot (or 1/4 of a yellow onion if you can't find a shallot) add that to the pan and cook until translucent. Add your scallops seasoning with sea salt and fresh ground pepper. As they are cooking tilt the pan and spoon the butter/oil mixture over the scallops. Cook until golden brown flipping once. Should take between 5-10 minutes depending on the size of your scallops. Remove the Scallops from the pan and add 1/4 cup of cream or half and half to the pan. Using a wooden spoon scrape up any caramelized bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil and then remove from the heat. Spoon sauce over scallops and serve.

Bacon is the one thing I don't eat Sad I know, I know. It's so good to everyone else. It's not a taste thing though, I get physically nauseous. I think it's an aversion rather than allergy... but yeah. Sadness.

Super nice day out. They've been forecasting it since the weekend. So Sunday I slaughtered a few nice fryers. Aged them in heavy brine. As of 1:00 this afternoon, they are on the BBQ. Smoking them with oak and mesquite. (Made a new batch of charcoal last night too. Turned out perfect!)

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Best instant noodles I've ever tried come from Korea. Samyang FTW!

Add raw egg during cooking for added texture/flavor.

Nothing. Literally. Ok well maybe not nothing, there's salt and pepper.

Well, that aint gonna do it. Tongue You'll need to shop for some protein, some veggie and some carb. I don't know what is available at a good price where you are.

Salt and pepper are the only condiments /spices you got?
