My daughter loves scallops and I can't wait to make this elegant dish for her. It comes from Bon Appetit.

I found these to be very messy; they really didn't set up even with chilling I had to triple the flour in the recipe in order to make them into cakes. Also the flavor was very bland and needs something to give it zing.
