Scallops may not be cheapest cuisine, but they're totally worth it. Join Molly as she shows you how to prepare them with corn and chorizo! Pro tip: treat scallops to the flavorful oil left behind when you cook chorizo-it’s basically liquid gold.

If you're not giving these scallops some buttery love whilst listening to Timecop 1983 tonight....are you even living, guys?

@Simone Bassman clair de lune is so overplayed, and im my opinion too intimate for serving it. some jazz would be better

Hey Molly! So when you cut your lime, why did you "pat" the open sides down on the cutting board before putting them in the bowl? I've never seen that.

Wet packed scallops can be dried in the fridge. Just salt them generously and put them on a plate lined with paper towels or a cooling rack for a few hours in the fridge uncovered.

I admit, I was not convinced to Molly in the beginning. I WAS WRONG. She is super knowledgeable and very skilled. I hope she gets promoted soon.

OMG I actually love the scallop muscles too, stir fried with green chilli, and onion with a little salt, and sambal, so good... very sweet, and the texture is so unique.

It boggles me that Chris wears his headphones OVER his apron. He's been out of the kitchen too long. Under the everything and out the neck of the shirt's the way to go.

I think a lot of people are intimidated by scallops because they’re buying the wet pack type at supermarkets and aren’t able to sear them and they can’t figure out what they’re doing wrong.

Had to come here after listening to TimeCop1983 first based on the comments. Welcome to synthwave people. I've been a fan for about 3 years now and I can't get enough of it... and I wasn't born til the late 80's!

I love Clair de Lune. It's one of my favorite piano pieces. It really stands out of the whole "Suite Bergamasque," and is a brilliant piece of art. But, Clair de Lune isn't Classical, it's Late Romanic/Modern Era piece. Debussy started wrote it in 1890 but he didn't publish it until 1905, because of the revisions he kept making.

I am completely confused regarding the wet pack vs dry pack at the beginning. I’ve watched it several times and 🤷‍♀️
Marshall Hunter

That looked like an editing error. I think wet pack is the one with all the water, and dry pack is the one you want for pan searing.

Most of your (although nice) recipes contains "milk cream" and/or "butter". Probably those not healthy fat ingredients would be easy to remove...

No. Claire de Lune is not a proper cooking tune. Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Mahler, Wagner, Webern and Schoenberg (only the latter most three I actually enjoy outside the kitchen). No Frenchmen other than Bizet in the kitchen. Not even Satie, the greatest of all French composers. Also Gang of Four, Smart Went Crazy, Rolling Stones (‘68-‘72), Fang, Fugazi and Bad Brains’ first album, or anything made in a swampland between the 20’s and 30’s, preferably by a blind man like Willie Johnson or Lemon Jefferson. Another tip as someone who cooks scallops as part of their living, adding butter while scallops are still sear side down will promote browning and the Maillard reaction so before lowering/turning off heat, add butter, let sit for even just a few seconds (depending on how well you know your burners and pans), then flip and start basting. Other than that, great recipe.
