Seared Scallops

I never went scallop diving as a child. I’ve done a lot of things in my life, but not that. I’m surprised the Mother did not make me scallop dive so that I would have a better appreciation of my food. Deep sea fishing didn’t go so well, but that’s another story. I just like to eat Seared Scallops.

Dry-packed scallops fit best in the keto way of eating. I use them in this recipe to avoid ingesting the solution most come in. I want my Seared Scallops to be all natural. Sugar free, gluten free, and low carb, scallops are naturally lean and full of vitamins. They also happen to be pretty tasty.

I prepared Scallops with Bacon Jalapeno Cream Sauce for my Auntie Madame Carole

When company comes over, I often make this dish. That’s because I can make the Bacon, Jalapeno, and Poblano Cream Sauce in advance. Then, I quickly sauté the scallops right before we eat. When served with a simple green salad, I have a fresh and elegant meal. This gives me more time to spend with my guests while pampering them with something they wouldn’t make for themselves. That’s KetoLuxe.
