    ellie_'s Note:

    We really enjoyed this with a tossed salad. The original recipe said to slice the cauliflower in 1/2 inch slices but I sliced mine in the food processor, so the slices were quite thin but we really liked it this way. Recipe source: Prevention

      A very fancy meal, for not a lot of work and fuss. You can't go wrong here if you love all the individual parts of this like we do. I used the stated amount of oil, but put half of it on the cauliflower, so it would roast up well. Also, with a nonstick pan, you need very little oil for the cooking of the scallops and shallots. I seared the scallops on medium til they were brown - 3 minutes per side, I didn't want them to get overcooked. You'll be happy to know DH kept thanking me for such a great dinner!

      This is low carb delicious heaven! I used a mandolin to slice the cauliflower. This is low carb because due to the cauliflower, it didn't need rice or noodles! So happy! Thanks, ellie! Made for PRMR.

      This is restaurant quality. I was so lucky to find fresh scallops. They were like buttah! Roasted cauliflower is always a winner with me. I will certainly be making this again!
