You might have to ask for "no added fat." I'm sure most restaurants would slather them with butter before or after they go under the broiler. Scallops by themselves are low in fat and high in protein, so I'd say they'd be a good choice.

Yes, as long as they're not broiled in a mess of butter. If they're broiled without much added fat, scallops are an excellent restaurant choice.

And while you are asking, ask them to go light on the salt!

Of course, if you're on the low carb way of eating, the butter is fine.
