The “Scallops”

For awhile now, I have been on a search for the perfect "scallops." I have seen people make it with king oyster mushrooms, but I felt that the mushroom was overpowering the dish already with the XO sauce and I needed something else that can imitate "scallops, and heart of palm came to mind! It is super easy to prepare them, especially when you use canned ones like I do! All I do is make some slice marks on them and sear them until they are golden brown on each side in vegan butter or olive oil.
