Magically simple and lots of flavours

  4. In a large skillet (I prefer a cast iron skillet for this) melt the remaining 2 Tbsps of butter on medium high.

    • sprinkle the Old Bay Spice over the whole pan
    • cook until shrimp are pink and scallops are white (turning once) – about 4-5 minutes
