Author: Derek Wolf
  • 10-12 Scallops patted dry
  • 2 tsp of Sea Salt
  • 2 tsp of Black Pepper
  • ¼ cup of Guinness Draught
  • ¼ cup of Unsalted Butter
  • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
  • Parsley for garnish
  • Olive Oil
  1. Pat your scallops dry and add a small drop of olive oil to each one (Pro Tip: Leave scallops with paper towel on top and bottom in fridge for 1 hour to make extra dry on outside). Season with sea salt and black pepper.
  2. Preheat your grill or charcoal to high temperature (around 400F). Add your skillet over fire to preheat 2-3 minutes before cooking along with some olive oil.
  3. Add scallops to the skillet and sear for about 2-3 minutes on the first side. After the flip, add Guinness Draught, Butter and Brown Sugar to skillet. Let melt and baste over the scallops for 2 minutes. Once done, pull scallops off and rest.
  4. Top scallops with some chopped parsley, pour yourself a pint of Guinness Draught and enjoy!
