4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces scallops and about 2 tablespoons sauce)

Two things are important when searing any food: use a very hot skillet, and cook the food in small batches. The high heat seals in the juices so that the food browns quickly.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sprinkle both sides of scallops with chili powder, salt, and black pepper.

Step 2

Melt 1 1/2 teaspoons butter in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add half of scallops; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove scallops from pan; keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining butter and scallops.

Step 3

Add water, jalapeño pepper, and lime juice to pan; cook 1 minute, scraping bottom and sides of pan to loosen browned bits. Spoon sauce over scallops; sprinkle with cilantro.
