  • 9-12 Pieces Scallops Medium Sized
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Salted Butter
  • 4 tbsp Kewpie Mayo
  • 1 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Stalk Green Onions
  • 1/8 tsp Togarashi optional


  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • If using frozen scallops, thaw as indicated on the package label. Once thawed, pat dry with a paper towel
  • In the meantime, finely chop green onions and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine Kewpie Mayo, Soy Sauce and optional Togarashi. Set aside.
  • In a large Teflon frying pan, add olive oil on high heat. Once the oil starts to lightly smoke, about 2-3 minutes, reduce heat to medium and carefully add scallops. Cook for ~1.5 minutes or until browned and then add butter. Once butter is melted, coat scallops with butter, flip over and continue to cook the other side for 1.5-2 minutes or until browned. Once done, transfer to a serving plate.
  • Add ~1/2 tbsp of Kewpie Mayo mix onto each seared scallop and sprinkle chopped green onions on top. Enjoy hot!
