Ok I won't lie. I seared these scallops a bit longer than I wanted (on one side).. But then again (truly honest) I always enjoyed my scallops either uber melty fresh and completely raw as sashimi and sushi, or well seared and medium firm.
Maybe a schmancy restaurant will make me change my mind in the future..
But until then, I enjoy my pre-frozen mini sea-mignons butter-roasty and easy-tear-apart-flaky.. with a drizzle of Soy Sauce (surprise!?), light citrus squeeze and Flavored Nori.. All of course with a bowl or two of steamy rice.
The Miso Soup pictured was Marukome Crab Flavor. These Instant Miso Soups have really come a long way since when only the powdered kind were available (dang, that dates me).
I had this meal the same day as my first Tofu Appetizer post hence some leftover toasted sesame seeds.. There were though no leftover scallops! :)
