A super-flavorful, Asian-spiced aioli punches up grilled scallops. Serve them on a bed of shredded veggies or skewer them for easy party food. Mayonnaise serves as a creamy base for the aioli sauce that also contains siracha, oil, ginger, garlic and vinegar. Ginger lends a woodsy, pungent flavor to this spicy sauce. The aioli can be made up to 2 days before serving. When purchasing scallops, look for colors that range from a pale beige to a creamy pink with a fresh, clean smell. Stay away from pure white scallops, as they have likely been sitting in water or chemicals, which drains them of their nutrients.
