I love seared sea scallops, they’re an underrated protein that are meaty and delicious. This Mexican twist is served over guacamole and drizzled with crema. They are phenomenal and really easy to make. If you want to keep this low-carb, ditch the tostada shell and serve them over a salad instead!

For the Guacamole:
For the Tostadas:
- Mash the avocado in a small bowl with the tomato, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, pepper to taste.
- Season scallops with salt and black pepper. Add the butter and oil to a 12-inch skillet on high heat. Once the butter begins to smoke, gently add the scallops, making sure they are not touching each other. Sear the scallops for 1 1/2 minutes on each side. The scallops should have a 1/4-inch golden crust on each side while still being translucent in the center.
- Spoon the guacamole onto the tostada, top with scallops and drizzle with sour cream.
