  4. Heat oil in a large cast-iron or non-stick skillet over medium-high =
  5. heat
  6. Add a few scallops to skillet, being careful not to crowd pan (if scallops are too close, moisture they emit can't escape, and scallops will steam not sear).
  7. Cook 2-4 minutes per side (and at least 30 seconds longer than you think) until golden brown on the outside and scallops can be turned easily
