yummy! we make scallops a lot but were looking for something a little more interesting - this did it :) i made it w/light margarine, also didn't have any scallions so diced up some onions... but the orange zest really gives it a great zing (i used cara cara orange). or maybe it was just that we started drinking the wine we were using for cooking... :)
