One of the best ways to cook a steak if you can’t make it out to the grill is on a cast iron skillet. You can’t beat the sear from the massive surface area that the skillet provides.

Remove the scallops from the refrigerator, unwrap them, rinse them in very cool tap water and allow them to drain on a fresh paper towel. Gently dry the scallops and set them on a plate, leaving space between each scallop.
