Description:
This healthy dish utilizes the clean/tasty flavor pairing of fennel and orange with the unctuous flavor of diver sea scallop. The effect is right on, knock-your-pants-off fantastic and makes for a wonderful light lunch or first course during dinnertime. If diver scallops are unavailable in your area, feel free to use a few regular-sized sea scallops.
