      We almost always enjoy a seafood combo, & this was no exception ~ Very nice flavors & the dish was very easy to prepare, as well! I look forward to making this one again! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      The lemon and tarragon go nicely with the seafood in this dish. I used only scallops, and half of the lemon for a light lemon flavor. I often use arborio rice for risotto, but since I had carnaroli in the house I used that (it is even better, actually). I seared the scallops in the last 5 minutes of cook time. This served 3 as a main dish with salad.
