When I started eating keto, I developed a taste for spicier foods. That’s because I no longer had sugar to provide flavor. This recipe for Bacon, Jalapeno, and Poblano Cream Sauce is a result of my newfound appreciation for the duet of heat and fat. The additional element of smokiness from the roasted poblano creates balance. So, the sauce won’t overwhelm the subtle sweetness of entrees like Sautéed Scallops. Sugar free, gluten free, and low carb, this replaced Alfredo as my go to cream sauce.
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.
