Lemon-Shallot Scallops

Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke

This simple scallop dish makes for an easy, yet elegant, weeknight dinner.  If you don't have shallots on hand, substitute the white portion of a green onion for a similar flavor. Serve scallops on top of either pasta or mixed greens for quick, healthy meal.
