Bringing The Sea To The Sleeper Bunk

This is what I made for dinner tonight, seared scallops.

There's really no recipe, as it's easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. Blot scallops with a paper towel to dry them. Salt and pepper each side. Heat a frying pan until it's very hot, then add butter and a little olive oil.

2. Once the butter begins to smoke a little, add the scallops making sure they don't touch each other. Cook one and a half to two minutes on each side until you get a nice golden crust - the centers of the scallops should be translucent.

3. Serve immediately.

I served mine over roasted garlic rice with sauteed fresh green beans on the side. Deeeelicious!

Although I seared these,
this is really my all-time favorite scallop recipe. That's how I'll be making them next time.

Good eatin' for being in a truck, isn't it?

My codriver and I started cooking in the truck this year. A small slowcooker and a forman grill seem to suffice with our factory sleeper. We use cooking bags in the slow cooker, and bleach wipes for clean up. Had some great burgers, sweet and sour meatballs, and kielbasa and sauerkraut are in regular rotation. Those scallops look awesome !
