1. Prepare the sauce: Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
2. Prepare the scallops: Pat scallops dry and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat avocado oil in a large sauté pan over high heat. Once hot, add scallops and cook for 2 minutes, then flip. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer to a paper towel.
3. To serve, spread sauce on a platter and place the scallops on top. Garnish with thinly sliced radishes and green onions.
