The trick is, you have to keep them crisp.

Scallops in Creamy Sauce

I had the privilege to see a good friend come over my place with a whole bag of fresh scallops.

She cooked them for us and it was awesome!

Scallops in a Creamy Sauce with Sambuca 

My friend has great taste, she didn’t bring any type of scallops….nothing less that Magdalen Islands scallops! (huge smile on my face)

Her original recipe was using cream.  We decided to turn it into a paleo version, therefore, without any dairy.
