    Sea scallops - about 2 minutes per side in a hot skillet just until the center is about to turn opaque.  About 130F internal, pull.  will rise to 135-140.

    I like them on the rare side - about 125.

    You will know if you overcook them, they will get rubbery and have little taste.  You can eat them raw, so undercooking is not a problem -- like nolaegghead said "about 125".

    As soon as they START turning from translucent to white or grayish -- they are done.  And if you have a dozen to turn at 400 degrees, before you get to the twelth one it will be overcooked..  Just my $ .02

    ive never taken a thermapen to them, i just wait till they start to look different. and agree, undercooked is better than overcooked. when your buying them make sure they are dry scallops, sometimes called day scallops, and stay away from wet scallops like the plague
