Seared Scallop Avocado Tower


I’m not a big fan of avocado, but I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this seared scallop avocado tower. This appetizer is easy to make and can be served on many different occasions. For a romantic dinner for two, try using a heart shape mould. For large parties, use shot glasses to serve it in. Or if you’re just planning on a casual dinner with friends, simply follow the instructions below. You can also substitute the scallop with lobster, crab meat, or even salmon. Give it a try and I promise you will love it just as much as I do. You may also want to serve it with a side of garlic bread. Enjoy!
