Saltscape’s Demo 1: Seared Scallops with Ancient Chinese Secret

All weekend at the ‘Saltscapes Harvest Meets the Holiday Expo’ we were cookin up some seared scallops featuring our ‘Ancient Chinese Secret’ spice blend! As promised, here is how we did it!


  • 1 lb scallops
  • 3 tbsp Big Cove Foods ‘Ancient Chinese Secret’ spice blend (or more as needed)
  • 3 tbsp clarified butter

Set a cast iron pan, or heavy bottom pan, on medium high heat and add the butter. While the pan is heating up, spread the Ancient Chinese Secret spice evenly on a plate. Crust one side of the scallops by placing the flat end on the plate and pressing gently down.

Once the pan is hot, place the scallops crusted side down in the pan. Allow to cook for 1-2 minutes per side. Take off heat and enjoy!
