It never really appeared on-screen -- they were diligent about always keeping his right hand positioned just so that you couldn't tell.
The best shot for spotting it is when Scotty walks into the bar on K-7 with an armful of tribbles - he couldn't really hide his right hand in that situation. Unfortunately, my Google-fu was weak the other night - that was actually the picture I was looking for.
Look also when Scotty is in the access crawlway in "That Which Survives" -- the closeup of his hands when he's manipulating the magnetic probe is about as clear as it gets. There's another shot in "Cat's Paw" in which Scotty is holding a phaser on Kirk and Spock where it's fairly easy to make out.
"Recently my 8 year-old cousin asked me, with a wicked twinkle in his eye, if I'd ever microwaved a banana. I'm terrified to try, but I'm sure whatever happens—splattering, abrupt, radioactive—sounds exactly like an Annie Clark guitar solo."
