Melt oil in heavy bottomed skillet over medium high or high heat. Pat scallops dry and pan sear scallops to preferred temperature. Place in scallop shell, drizzle with Teriyaki sauce and Kewpie mayonnaise and sprinkle with crispy fried shallots. This is a very simple recipe that is absolutely amazing.
*Kewpie mayonnaise is a Japanese mayo that’s super creamy and rich. It does have MSG, so feel free to substitute regular mayonnaise if you must, but it won’t be quite the same. You can buy it at most Asian food stores and the Asian food section of many supermarkets. You can also buy crispy fried onions or shallots in big plastic containers at most Asian food stores, or you can make them yourself. To do so, just heat your preferred oil or butter till very hot and cook thinly sliced shallots ’til crispy. Coconut Secrets Teriyaki sauce is AMAZING. The fact that it’s also supposedly good for you just puts it right over the top. I buy it at my local health food store but you can also buy it online. You could probably use regular teriyaki sauce, but I encourage you to buy some of this stuff. It’s absolutely amazing.
