This recipe was actually created because we had some leftover scallops from our Japanese Style Butter Seared Scallops and didn’t know what to do with it!  So we took some inspiration from my sister’s Prosciutto Radish Sprouts Wraps with Japanese Garlic Mayo recipe and combined it with our Spicy Miso Mayo Calamari and out came this delicious appetizer! 

It’s very easy to prepare and will definitely impress your guests keto and non-keto alike!  P.S. – Don’t forget the wine!

Scallops being a shellfish do come with some carbs, but they also come with plenty of upsides as well!  Scallops are loaded with omega 3s, minerals especially magnesium and phosphorous, a good amount of protein, and most importantly they taste delicious! 

The creaminess of the butter scallops paired with the spicy mayo sauce really bring the umami to the forefront creating an impressive dish that’s sure to impress your guests (or yourself)!

This dish as a whole weighs in at ~5g net carbs, or 0.5 g net carbs per scallop.
